Dateline reports on Medicaid abuses among Texas dentists. In 1999, Texas dentists put more stainless steel crowns on poor children in the Medicaid program than all the children in the Medicaid programs in New York, Florida, California, Illinois, and Pennsylvania combined. Some dental work was being done without the consent of parents. The investigation used FOI requests for the Medicaid billing database to complete its analysis.
