Medicaid dentists giving children multiple stainless steel crowns–Reddit

That’s the headline of a discussion happening over at reddit.  Check it out.



I have read news stories about a 4-year old girl named Savannah who had all of her teeth capped during a visit to an Arizona dentist. The mother believes she was scammed. There were cases where kids had almost all or all teeth capped and there were accusations of dental Medicaid fraud (Medicaid Dental Center in North Carolina). Papoose boards are used to restrain the kids.

If state dental boards are unable to stop this, how should the public stop it?
