Florida pediatric dentist accused of torturing children

A Florida dentist is accused of harming the most vulnerable of patients, young children.

Meanwhile, he is accused of collecting millions of dollars in Medicaid payments for procedures that his patients didn’t need or want.

Going to the dentist can be a terrifying experience for children, but some parents say they were horrified when they found out what happened to their kids at the hands of 78-year-old Howard Schneider.

More here. He's 78 and has been practicing dentistry for 50 years. How long has this been going on without anyone knowing about it?

Unfortunately, the Medicaid system is set up in such a way as to pay dentists per tooth. As a result, he actually got paid more for removing more teeth than necessary, and that (along with his apparent sadism) could have been a motive.
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.
