Summary The series revealed that the Washington dental board has been slow to act and has cut generous deals with some of the state's most complained-about dentists. The investigation revealed that dentists had been allowed to continue working in Washington after they lost their licences in other states, have been caught running dangerously unsanitary clinics, or have repeatedly injured patients.
