I think Kool Smiles Dental press releases about “new jobs” is very misleading

Over the past several days Kool Smiles Dental (NCDR, LLC) has published press releases about their expansion, growth and plans to hire from 80 to 100 jobs in various states. i.e. South Carolina to get 100 new jobs, Virginia blessed with 100, Indiana 88 new jobs.
Using buzz words and phrases such as “expansion”, “bright economic outlook” “provide jobs” leaves the reader feeling warm and fuzzy about Kool Smiles doesn’t it?  Heck they are providing dental treatment for underprivileged children and children whose parents have fallen on hard times due to the poor economy and bleak job outlook.  As the cherry on top they state they are providing jobs for states and local communities. 
Shoot, they even have lawmakers commenting about the fabulous news:

Central KY Commercial Real Estate Blog: NAI Isaac Brings Kool Smiles Dentistry to Elizabethtown, KY

Central KY Commercial Real Estate Blog: NAI Isaac Brings Kool Smiles Dentistry to Elizabethtown, KY

koolsmilesWARNING to Elizabethtown, Kentucky residents; it looks like you are about to become the unwitting prey of a Kool Smiles dental center. 

Danger to your children awaits.  Remember the dental mill mantra “Patients may be hard to increase, but billable procedures are not!”  Creative dentistry at its best.

I feel Kool Smiles operates illegally in Kentucky under the statues of a Professional Service Corporation (PSC) where by the person owning and directing the “professional service” must be licensed by the “professional” board of the state, in this case the Kentucky Board of Dentistry and the person MUST perform those services. KRS 313.060 (3) no person shall conduct dental practice in their name unless he or she personally performs services as a dentist is such office.  Not less then 1/2 of the officers of a PSC and ALL of the officers other than the secretary and the treasurer shall be qualified persons to perform the professional services. See KRS 274.027 and 274.045 

Why the KY Dental Board ignores its own laws, rules and regulations is beyond me.

Send me your Kool Smiles information or documentation its time they too stop torturing children and raping the Medicaid system in their illegal clinics.


Here is the sign off highway US41 in Terra Haute, Indiana pointing to one of the Kool Smiles Dental Centers.

I recently took this during one of my stops on my “where in the world is the next illegal dental clinic” tour which I began in April. 

I also took the time to check out the clinic and even spoke with the next door business owners, who had a lot to say.

There was a cute little shop right next door that two lovely grandmother type ladies owned.  I was in need of a wedding gift so I went in to see what they had.  After I picked out a couple of nice items, the graciously offered to gift wrap them, which gave me time to ask them about the dental clinic next door. 

Immediately the woman scowled.  I knew that she knew it was a bad bad place.  Just a few inquisitive questions got her to talking.  She told me about the horrible and terrifying screams they hear through the walls.  She told of the many times her patrons who would be shopping would look at her and gasp.  She told me there are times where customers have become extremely upset hearing the shear terror in the tiny screams coming through the walls. 

IMG_0885She said it was where a lot of Medicaid children went, she didn’t know I l already knew all about these folks.  This day, it was nice outside, sun shining and a slight breeze, they had their backdoor open to let the breeze flow though.

She said her and her partner had stepped out back earlier and listened at the back door of the Kool Smiles and it made them both sick.  They had called in a complaint a time or two but nothing was ever done, it’s a dentist office, that treats children, who cares if there are screams she was told.

Who cares?  I do.  Don’t you? 

If you are a former employee please contact me, send me what evidence you have, your identity is strictly confidential.  I couldn’t know all I know if I didn’t keep my informants identity a secret.  Heck, just send me some documents anonymously, that’s fine too.

Kool Smiles, Dentist and Assistant Sued For Leaving Burn On Child's Face-Lexington, KY

Map picture
Kool Smiles, a dentist and dental assistant are being sued for injuring a child in Lexington, Kentucky.  According to the complaint the child's mother was refused access to her child and was forced to stay in the waiting room.  Anyone who knows anything about these dental mill knows is this fact.
When the child came out he was crying and told him mommy they hurt him.  There is no telling what all these monsters did, but one thing for sure, the left a serious burn on his cheek.  His mother took him to the University of Kentucky  medical center to have the burn examined and was told it most likely would leave a permanent scar on the little boy's face.

Currently Harris Williams & Company are bidding for the purchase of Kool Smiles.  Honestly, I look forward to this, the deeper the pockets the more the rewards for all the thousands of children lining up for compensation from the abuse of Kool Smiles creepy, slimy, dentists and their assistants.  Expect Kool Smiles  liability insurance company to drop them like hot potatoes just as two have done with Small Smiles.  Then what?

(Harris Williams & Co. appear to be negotiators for Private Equity Firms, according to their website.  Wonder which firm really wants Kool Smiles?)

I hope the dental assistants working in these places do not make the mistake they are innocent bystanders.  This is one of those cases of "if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem".  Personally, I would roll on these creeps.
You either have the chance to stand up and report it, or sit in the defendants chair, it is your choice, choose wisely.  Do not end up like some I know who have tried to ride it out, thinking they "company" will have their lawyers protect you.  This is not likely to happen and you will likely be told to get your own attorney, only after you meet with their attorney's and they get all the evidence they can from you to help cover their ass and lay the blame in your lap.  I've seen it happen over and over again.
Kool Smiles defense to this action - "it was the child's fault."
