New Fool On The Block In Youngstown, OH Small Smiles Clinic

Looks like we have another change of faux ownership for the Youngstown, Ohio clinic.  Yes, it’s true!  I know, amazing, right?  This is the clinic who had the idiot dentist fall asleep during a procedure.

I know, I know, he says he was dozing while the assistant was doing something, but that assistant says that is a total lie!  I believe the assistant.

The latest foolish dentist to add his name to the Secretary of State’s LLC documents as “owner” of this clinic is….

drum roll please….

Dr. Michael Crites! 

Dr. Michael Crites should know better by now, he’s been there for just over two years.  Maybe being “owner” is his reenlistment bonus.  If so, it is NO bonus!  It’s more like putting your head in the guillotine. 

However, Dr. Crites is no stranger to the Ohio dental board.  There are 16 pages of “actions” against him.  That explains why he fits right in at Small Smiles of Youngstown. 

I find it hard to believe (no I don’t) that he has credentials with any state or and especially any company that manages Ohio’s Medicaid Dental Program.  Geez!

History of this clinic

First registered as an LLC in Ohio February 2007, Joseph Bower the authorized representative, (Agent).  Name- Small Smiles of Youngstown, LLC –Kenneth E. Knott, DDS and Robert F. Andrus, DDS.

Knott and Andrus were “fired” because Kallene West (also let go) was taking their CE’s for them.  However FORBA didn’t have a problem with Kallene taking the CE’s for Dr. Bridgett Merritt-Brooks.  Dr. Bridget is still working her little fingers to the bone in South Bend.  In my opinion Dr. Bridgett is practicing without a licenses in Indiana…but heck, who am I to judge right?  More on this a bit later. 

Back to Youngstown:

Apparently Dr. Michael Crites can’t wait to be added to the next lawsuit.

Small Smiles of South Bend, LLC

While taking a look at Small Smiles Clinics in Indians I found the following for the Small Smiles of South Bend, LLC.

In searching the Indiana Dental Licenses I found the following:

Bridget Lynn Merritt-Brooks
Licenses Number
12011081B and 12011081A
(She is licenses to write prescriptions)

Small Smiles of South Bend, LLC
2332 Miracle Lane
Mishawaka, IN 46545-3012

Bridget Lynn Merritt-Brooks is also licensed in Michigan.

The Small Smiles dental clinic in South Bend Indiana has been reported to have all the same problems I've been reporting on this site for two years. However, here all kids get nitrous (well pretty much all) since Indiana medicaid pays for that. (Wonder if they pay for 'behavioral management' as well) We've seen in the past that if a state pays for behavioral management, the kids get strapped to a papoose board immediately.

From what I hear FORBA hired an associated dentist who just graduated from school as they often do and this dentist is more concerned with her iphone than her young patients. While not totally spending time in the hall ways on her iphone, she also spends a lot of time in the hallway reading her textbook to refresh her memory before she goes it to treat the children.

For Pete's Sake, parents stay away from Small Smiles. Nothing has gotten any better. Of course this is just my opinion, you do as you see fit.
