FINALLY, someone asking Church Street Health Management to “prove it”, “fork it over”, “show us from where the money comes” and more.

Bankruptcy Watchdog Protests Wind-Down Process Of Small Smiles

Katy Stech May 11, 2012 (c) 2012 Dow Jones & Company, Inc.

A federal court watchdog wants to put a hold on the $25 million sale of the operator of Small Smiles Dental Centers to a private equity firm--a deal that a bankruptcy judge has yet to approve--until the Tennessee-based chain sheds light on its post-closing moves.

U.S. Trustee Samuel Crocker, who monitors bankruptcy court pleadings for the Department of Justice, wants company executives to be clearer about the financial professional who would take over the bankruptcy estate once distressed investor Garrison Investment Group purchases its operations on May 31, according to papers filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Nashville, Tenn.

I heard the the infamous Doug Brown and Kirk Huntsman might be involved before it ends. if so, Doug Brown would be involved in more Private Equity “Medicaid dental mills” and “pull every tooth in your mouth and slap in some cheap denture” operations in the world.

Who wants to bet they do all they can to postpone this one?!!  LOL

Appears just about anyone can motion for a Rule 2004 Examination.

Exhibit A of Exhibit 1 – List of Small Smiles Dentist Names
I’d bet a whole crap load of these 916 dentists are on Santa’s Naughty list. No wonder I was told some of the folks in the below list are spinning in their shoes and support employees are afraid some are going to have a heart attack.
