Description

This investigation examines how five Colorado dental clinics, which billed Medicaid for more than $16 million in 14 months, perform extensive dental work on children. The stories also reveal how children were restrained during treatment while their parents were required to sit in waiting rooms. Though one dentist defended the work, saying poor children tend to have poorer dental hygiene habits, two state agencies are looking into how the clinics do business.
