  • Over 1,100 professionals (so far) have signed a
    statement urging Congress to stop water
    fluoridation nationwide and to hold Congressional
    hearings about why federal officials continue to
    promote fluoridation in the face of new
    scientific evidence that fluoridation is
    ineffective and has serious health risks. (
    http//www.fluorideaction.org/statement.august.200
    7.html )
  • Signers include a Nobel Prize winner, three NRC
    fluoride panel members, two officers in the EPA
    Union representing 1500 EPA professionals and
    hundreds of medical, dental, academic, scientific
    and environmental professionals, worldwide. Local
    signers include Long Island dentists Drs. Norman
    Bressack, Leonard Fazio, Theodore Kastenbaum,
    Krystna Wolski and physician Richard Carlton.
    Signer Dr. Arvid Carlsson, winner of the 2000
    Nobel Prize for Medicine, says, Fluoridation is
    against all principles of modern pharmacology.

  • According to Tzuchi's study, Tibetans drink large
    amounts of butter tea, sometimes up to 40 to 50
    cups a day.
  • "They drink it like water, so it causes many
    health problems, like dental or skeletal
    fluorosis, yellow teeth, tooth decay and stooping
    of the back," Tzuchi's Wang said.
  • According to the WHO, a safe fluorine intake is
    2mg for a child and 4mg for an adult, but the
    fluorine content of a kettle of butter tea made
    from the traditional Tibetan brick-tea is around
    6mg to 10mg.

  • Some patients told NBC 10's I-Team they ended up
    in thousands of dollars in debt for dental work
    that was never finished.
  • Michael D'Ippolito went to Broadway Dental in
    Pawtucket in 2006. The dentist was Dr. William
    Salisbury.
  • "They took me in and took X-rays of my bottom
    teeth," he told NBC 10's Audrey Laganas.
  • D'Ippolito, 78, needed dentures but couldn't
    afford them. 
  • Broadway Dental arranged 3,500 in financing for
    D'Ippolito, most of which came from a company
    called CareCredit.
  • A subsidiary of GE Money, CareCredit offers loans
    to patients all over the country for health
    services, including dentistry. The loans are set
    up at the health care provider's office.
  • Laganas "They (Broadway Dental) charged you this
    money on the financing deal right up front?"
  • D'Ippolito "Right up front."
  • Laganas "Before finishing all the work?"
  • D'Ippolito "Yes."
  • D'Ippolito said he never got his dentures.
  • "I went in there all the doors were locked," he
    said. "Nobody there."
  • Shortly after he had his teeth pulled, D'Ippolito
    learned Salisbury closed Broadway Dental and
    moved to another building in Fall River, where
    Salisbury began practicing under the name Coast
    Dental.

  • Small Smiles' parent company flat out denies
    having any such policy that children be separated
    from their parents. But the I-Team has heard just
    the opposite from dozens of parents, and former
    Small Smiles dentists and assistants.

39
  • Former Small Smiles dental assistants told us
    first hand what happens to children in the back.
    Trina Crosby "It's terrifying for them. They
    cry. They scream. They want their
    mommies."Roberta Baskin "Can any of the
    parents go back there?Trina No. They tell them
    that it's the law, that they're not allowed back
    there, which is totally false." The lead
    dentist in the Small Smiles clinic in Langley
    Park told us separating parents and children is
    not only company policy, but a federal
    regulation. Dr. Aldred Williams "If you can
    imagine a clinic seeing 80, 85 patients in a day,
    and all of their parents are back, roaming
    around, all over the clinic, it is a violation of
    HIPAA regulations."

40
  • This statement from company headquarters to the
    I-Team says its dentist misspoke "Small
    Smiles has NO policy that prohibits parents in
    the treatment area."  And goes on to say its
    "family-friendly policy encourages our dentists
    to allow parents in the treatment area" But
    the I-Team obtained the "Small Smiles Dental
    Clinic Manual (of) Policies and Procedures." 
    Right there on page 4 under "Parental Management"
    it outlines why parents should NOT be allowed in
    the roomwith the only exceptions to the rule
    the Severely Handicapped and Deaf children
    needing a translator.

  • November 19, 2007 -- A Park Slope dentist has
    filed a 75 million lawsuit, claiming Eliot
    Spitzer used the Attorney General's Office to
    trump up politically convenient charges of
    Medicaid fraud against him in 2006.
  • The lawsuit, filed last week in Brooklyn federal
    court, charges that Spitzer, who in 2006 was the
    attorney general and the Democratic front-runner
    in the primary battle for governor, was getting
    slammed as being soft on Medicaid fraud - and
    found a convenient fall guy.
  • "I had it all, and overnight I lost it all for no
    good reason, other than for the governor to have
    a nice headline," said the dentist, Leonard
    Morse. "If that's what they'll do to a
    professional, imagine what they could do to the
    everyday citizen."
  • In 2002, when the Attorney General's Office
    demanded records, he expected another routine
    audit. He'd already had four such audits, with no
    findings of wrongdoing.
  • More than four years later, authorities told him
    he'd be charged with allegedly ripping off 1
    million from the program.
  • It happened in April 2006, just as the New York
    Times was running a major series of stories on
    Medicaid fraud and Spitzer's primary opponent,
    Tom Suozzi, was slinging accusations that Spitzer
    was soft on the issue.
  • "We're alleging that he was falsely accused of
    committing a crime that he absolutely didn't
    commit and that these charges were filed for
    political reasons," said lawyer Jon Norinsberg.
  • The charges collapsed at trial after reams of
    records were ruled inadmissible.
  • In the end, prosecutors asked Justice John Walsh
    to consider charges that Morse stole just 3,000.
    The judge found the dentist not guilty on that
    charge.
  • But today, Morse's patients are long gone -
    scared off, he says, by the barrage of press
    releases calling their dentist a thief.
  • Copies of those press releases, in a variety of
    languages, are still posted on the Web site of
    the current attorney general, Andrew Cuomo.
  • Both Spitzer and Cuomo declined comment.
  • "I think I want beyond money," said Morse. "I
    want justice. I want my good name back. I want
    all those thousands of patients back who I
    treated for 30 years. I want all my friends and
    neighbors and relatives to see that I didn't do
    anything. I became a political pawn."

  • The Daily Bruin article, which it said was based
    on examinations of hundreds of pages of e-mails
    and internal documents, said the program's high
    admissions standards were relaxed for children or
    relatives of donors who pledged hefty financial
    gifts, one as high as 1 million.Amid a
    university probe, John Beumer III in February
    resigned as chairman of the faculty executive
    committee of the School of Dentistry."The
    selection process for residents in orthodontics
    amounts to nothing less than an affirmative
    action program for the wealthy and
    well-connected," he wrote in a resignation letter
    posted Tuesday on the Daily Bruin's website.
    "Preferential treatment has been given to
    children of donors and students who have worked
    in the research laboratories of orthodontics
    faculty."

46
  • As for the investigation by the American Dental
    Assn., Lokman declined to elaborate.However,
    two members of the School of Dentistry who asked
    that their names not be used out of fear of
    retribution, said the alleged cheating involved
    the sharing of compact discs that contained
    improperly obtained questions that appear in
    American Dental Assn.'s National Board Dental
    Examinations.

  • He didn't set out to be a dental engineer -
    almost no one does. His original specialty was
    aerospace engineering - studying how
    manufacturing techniques introduce imperfections
    in aircraft parts, and how those defects lead to
    failures. He moved east from the state of
    Washington to take advantage of Maryland's strong
    aerospace engineering sector.All that changed
    in 1998, when he cracked a tooth on a piece of
    bone hidden in an Italian sausage sub. It was the
    second time he'd broken a tooth biting down on
    something hard."The dentist told me it was
    pretty common," he said. "I started thinking,
    'I'm going to figure out why ... this is what I'm
    going to study.'"And so he reengineered his
    engineering lab at UMBC to apply the same
    techniques he used on aircraft parts to studying
    why teeth split."Your teeth see as much
    physical activity as anywhere else in your body,"
    Arola said. "The magnitude of forces put on them
    are far greater than those put on other parts of
    the body."

56
  • Arola discovered that fractures in the dentin of
    elderly Chinese people grow about 50 percent
    faster than American fractures. In the United
    States, cracks grow about 100 times faster in the
    teeth of patients older than 60 than in those of
    younger patients.
  • It's still unclear why Chinese teeth are more
    brittle, but diet and genetics might play a role.
    Arola said the Chinese thirst for tea might cause
    their teeth to absorb more minerals and harden
    more than nontea drinkers.High levels of
    fluoride introduced to Shanghai's tap water might
    be another culprit. Although fluoride strengthens
    tooth enamel, Arola said, over a lifetime it
    might clog microscopic, fluid-filled tubules that
    run through the dentin.

  • A womans teeth looked as though they had been
    dipped in acid after she had whitening treatment
    aboard a cruise ship, a dentist said yesterday.
  • Carla Regan, 47, was on a two-week cruise in the
    Eastern Mediterranean with her husband and two
    children when she decided to treat herself to the
    130 treatment. But she was left with yellowing,
    easily stained and dry teeth after a chemical
    typically used for disinfecting swimming pools
    stripped away the top layer of tooth enamel on
    her front eight teeth. The treatment, using
    chlorine dioxide, was of a kind increasingly
    being offered to consumers wishing to brighten up
    their smile, despite evidence that it causes
    harm. Mrs Regan is now facing a 5,000 bill to
    restore her mouths appearance.
  • The General Dental Council has determined that
    only a registered dentist can carry out teeth
    whitening, yet the cruise ship treatment was
    provided by beauticians in an onboard spa, with
    no dentist even to supervise, she said.
  • Mrs Regan said yesterday The beauty salon on
    the ship was offering teeth whitening and I
    thought to myself, why not? It seemed like an
    appropriately indulgent thing to do on holiday
    they promoted it as nontoxic and safe. However, a
    week later I noticed my teeth were starting to
    look stained, and with time they only got darker.
    I also constantly had a dry mouth feeling, so I
    decided to see a dentist to tell me what could be
    wrong.

Gallows humor is inseparable from dentistry at
one point I heard the good doctor say, as he
plowed through the layers of plaque and tartar,
Good news. Ive found some of your teeth.?

The clever thing about this treatment (known as
JK Veneers) is that it takes away the stains and
the shame, without making you look like a
game-show host or a candidate claiming that he
likes being back in Iowa.

  • We've already seen medical students operate on
    robots that bleed, yap and flat-line, but it's
    about time dental students underwent the same
    kind of scrutiny, don'tcha think? If things go as
    planned, future dentists in Japan could soon be
    practicing on Simroid, a humanoid that resembles
    a young woman and can talk back when students hit
    a nerve. Reportedly, the bot can exclaim "it
    hurts" and move her eyes / hands whenever
    discomfort is felt, but best of all, engineers
    included a "breast sensor" to determine if that
    area has been touched inappropriately during
    training. Nothing wrong with ensuring the ethical
    treatment of robots, we suppose.
