ADA Mass Email Today Promoting Private Equity Corporate Owned Dentistry.

Just in case you were unsure where the ADA stood on private equity and corporate owned illegal dental chains, you don’t need to be.

American Dental Association asks Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to back off the audits. Seriously! While, upstairs, the Academy of General Dentistry wants more taxpayer funding. Seriously!

The American Dental Association sent this letter to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid:

ADA Letter to CMS July 2011

American Dental Association,211 East Chicago Ave.,Chicago, IL 60611-2678

Then ABC ran this, by Chris Como, (his brother is NY Governor Andrew Como who said a month or so ago Medicaid audits were just way to hard on corporations.)

With more than 16 million low-income U.S. children on Medicaid not receiving dental care -- or even a routine exam -- in 2009, according to the Pew Center on the States, dentists and ERs say they are treating very young patients with teeth blackened from decay and bacteria and multiple cavities.

"I see it in their eyes before they tell me it's that way," Dr. Gregory Folse told ABC News. "We are able to intervene and take the pain away from their teeth and it brings the spark back. And that's my goal."

Folse's Outreach Dentistry mobile clinic travels to schools around Louisiana, filling cavities and teaching children and parents about the importance of oral hygiene.

In 2007, Congress held a hearing on the issue of children's dental health after Deamonte Driver, a 12-year-old Maryland boy, died when a tooth infection spread to his brain. His mother, Alyce Driver, had been unable to find a dentist to treat him on Medicaid and could not afford to pay out of pocket.

At the time, Leslie Norwalk, then-acting administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, called his death "a failure on many levels."

One dentist’s view on the ADA

Posted by Frenchpotato

The reason they can take advantage of you is simply because there are too many dentists, and a lot more are coming down the pike.

The ADA does not care.  The ADA has really disappointed me. ADA automatically gives all these new schools provisional accreditation.
I hope I live long enough to see dental schools start closing as they did in the 1980's.  Maybe I will live long enough to see people wake up and stop joining the ADA.

BTW, when I was being encouraged to join the ADA, other dentists would say, if you do not join and you  are ever sued, the opposing attorney will say, "she is not even a member of the ADA."

Seriously, I would like to hear ONE  good reason to be a member of the ADA.
