Dental has always had corruption in the profession. The scratching of the enamel below gum lines is a sure bet to bring in reoccurring business from tooth decay. Some with root canals. The making of dentures that don't fit properly with poor quality material is troublesome. Many people have been going to Mexico or the out islands off Florida for quality work by the foreigners because you can have a class A vacation while having the dental work done at 1/3 the price including airfare, hotel and the dental work for two members of the family.

Health care reform's dirty little secret. Mental health and dental care are igored. More people need these services than health care and they are far more expensive in respect to co pays (when you have insurance.) Forget about it if you have none. I myself need a root canal and cap. I have to try a dental school or charity. Those that do charity cases told me you have to get in line hours before they open and it is not only first come first serve, but those in pain first. Which means you can wait every day and may never get help. So, my reps can stick their heath care reform.
