    I used to have the occasional "wake up with no teeth" nightmare..this is almost as bad...

    "A former dentist in Massachusetts has pleaded guilty to Medicaid fraud for using paper clips instead of stainless steel posts in root canals. "

    Dentist Accused Of Using Paper Clips In Root Canals « CBS Connecticut

    I have sunk roughly 10,000 dollars into my mouth over the last 5-6 years...CAN YOU IMAGINE?

    Sadly, I can...

    The guy was just an example of people who put profit over people.

    No, he's an example of a criminal who didn't give a shit about the people he was duping.

    How much could that have saved him?

    If he's doing that rest assured he's doing other, much worse things. Such as not autoclaving (sterilizing) his instruments between patients and using expired adhesive compounds, etc. I've had a few bad experiences with dentists and I've read and heard some real horror stories about them. This is just one more.

    While on the subject, one thing that annoys the hell out of me is a dentist who asks a question while his thumb is in your mouth. I've had several of them do that and I wonder if they do it on purpose.

    The poor dentists drill teeth for money and I usually hear about it from word of mouth. I can't mention a name because I don't want to be sued.
