Clinic’s Ownership: Tax Questions

No doubt I have asked this question before.  But I am going to ask it again. 
Since FORBA’s Small Smiles clinics are registered with the Secretary of State’s office as being owned by random dentists I have a few questions:

1.  Does the individual dentist file a tax return on those clinics?  If not, YIKES!
2. Does the individual dentist file a tangible property tax return and pay property tax on all that equipment?  If not, YIKES!
3.  When the dentist in question quits , gets fired or leaves FORBA’s employment, and FORBA is forced to register someone else as owner, how is this “sale” explained?   I’m thinking some major tax revenue is being missed here. 
4.  Why am I the only person asking these questions?
If Dr. Katie (Helen Petersen) does NOT own all those clinics in Indiana, what does Dr. Katie own?  What about Dr. Jodi Kuhn in Kentucky?  What about Dr. Ken Knott in Alabama?  (yes, Dr. Knott is still listed as owner in Alabama, or at least he was on December 31, 2009, because he signed (or someone signed) the annual report. What about Dr. William Nash? 
5.  I wonder if Dr. Ken Knott knows they still have him owning those clinics? 
If any of these dentist have not filed tax returns on the income from these clinics, I’d say there might be a problem.
How would this all be explained in an IRS audit?

Who knows, maybe all those tax forms are sent to Corporate Headquarters in downtown Nashville and someone down there files the tax returns and signs the name of the poor innocent dentists.

Knott The Dentist

Ya know, all of this crap just burns my butt to no end. I just can't talk about it enough.
Let's take Kenneth Eugene Knott, Dentist At Large.
I'm using him as an example, he certainly isn't the only one doing this for Small Smiles or Kool Smiles either for that matter. There are bunches and bunches of them out there! Rudy Padula, (Adolph Padula), Robert Andrus, Michael DeRose, the list just goes on and on.

On Delta Dental's PPO list he's listed as a dental provider for the Small Smiles in Fort Wayne, IN. If you made an appointment with that clinic I can tell you with 100% certainty that you would NOT see Dr. Knott, nor is he in the building and probably never has been.
He's listed as the dentist at the Small Smiles in Washington, DC, the ones in Cincinnati, and in Kentucky and in Oklahoma and on and on...Arizona, New Hampshire...more and more.

Now look, Dental Boards, what the matter with you people?
If there is a dentist who is applying for a licenses in a state he clearly does not live it that should raise some enormous red flags and I just don't get how it's gotten this outta hand.
It's time to clean this mess up! And I'm not talking about next meeting time either, I'm talking last week.
We all know Kenneth Eugene Knott does not practice dentistry in all of these states, well unless he has one of those cool magic red capes like Superman!
