Medical Minute: Are Pediatric Dentists Drilling for Dollars?

Drilling for dollars

Inside Edition recently aired an investigative report on pediatric dentists who perform unnecessary, excessive, and expensive dental procedures on small children.

Alicea White took her four-year-old daughter, Savannah, to Happy Valley Pediatric Dentistry in Phoenix, AZ, for a routine dental appointment. The dentist, Dr. Karan Nett, diagnosed the girl with tooth decay (probably due to bottle rot) and four cavities.

But Alicea says instead of just filling the four cavities on Savannah, Dr. Nett filled the girl’s mouth with expensive silver caps.

“I was completely shocked,” said Alicea. “All that silver in her mouth. I was like, ‘Oh my God, what happened?’”

Savannah was in tears after the procedure. Alicea said, “It broke my heart. I was in tears right along with her.”

According to Inside Edition, Savannah was taunted by people who compared her new smile to the James Bond villain, Jaws.

Alicea believes Dr. Nett was drilling for dollars, otherwise known as providing unnecessary dental procedures for profit.

Inside Edition‘s Lisa Guerrero confronted Dr. Nett outside the dental office.

“I’d like to talk to you about a little girl whose mouth you filled with metal? Would you like to look at these pictures and explain these pictures?” Guerrero asked Dr. Nett as she walked to her car.

Dr. Nett denied any wrongdoing, saying the work was necessary due to Savannah’s significant tooth decay.

The reason the procedure was unnecessary is because the doctor capped all of Savannah’s deciduous teeth, also known as baby teeth, temporary teeth, or primary teeth. But the fact is that most, if not all, of Savannah’s baby teeth will eventually fall out and be replaced by her adult (permanent) teeth.

So capping all of Savannah’s teeth was completely unnecessary and emotionally traumatic for the child.

Deciduous teeth

The images above show a child’s skull with all of its baby teeth intact. Above the baby teeth, in the jaw, are permanent teeth that will eventually move down and replace the baby teeth.

Many parents don’t know this. So they are easy targets for unscrupulous dentists.

Inside Edition interviewed other parents whose children were victims of doctors who were drilling for dollars.

“I’ll give you an example: a child comes in, complaining of no trouble, no problems with any of their teeth. Thirty minutes later, the child comes out with ten or fifteen root canals, ten or fifteen stainless steel crowns,” said attorney Tom Crosley who represents over 250 children making claims against the Smile Center, a dental chain in San Antonio, Texas.

The best prevention for unscrupulous dentists is to educate yourselves about your child’s stages of tooth development and dental procedures.

    That’s what I was thinking. Plus Sandra said most if not all baby teeth will be replaced by grown up teeth. Shouldn’t that be 100% all?

    I meant to say opinion, idk where the hell i got decision from lol. I agree to always get another opinion. Doctors are humans just like we are and they make mistakes or make a lapse in judgement. Unfortunately, their lapse in judgement could be fatal. I always do my own research as well. Hell thats what WebMD is for. I self-diagnose sometimes before I go see my doctor and I have been right about 3 out of five times.

    Pretty much. As with any other organism, if it is not take care of, it will break down.

    I believe in finding good pediatric dentists, not these franchise places. We went to a Kool Smiles once, scam artists. Both independently owned never cheated us, never tried to anything that didn’t need to be fine. In fact, we often got discounts. There have been times where I have emailed pictures of the kids mouth because they didn’t want me driving out of the way.

    I just got a letter in the email saying exactly that. Talking about a damn gift card if I take my son…I threw that mess in the trash.

    All Smiles Dental is a big offender but all these storefront dental offices are doing it…did you read my 1st post about his mansion with the water park?

    The attorney general here in Texas claims they are investigating.. Its been a topic in TX for years. Some dentist paid Rick Perry and they changed the medicaid rules to expand what dental proceedures would be paid for and it was off to the bank after that

    I am going to tell you what I experienced with my son. I was looking for a good pediatric dentist and a new Kool Smiles just opened in my area. I took him there for a routine cleaning, he wasn’t complaining of any troubles at all. The doc came out and told me my son had 5 cavities and needed to be filled/capped asap. I scheduled an appointment to bring him back but it wasn’t sitting right with me so I took him to another doc and that doc told me my son didn’t have cavities and caps were not needed. Beware parents

  136. 136

    I hate the dentist till this day because when I was young, the dentist always told my mom something was wrong with my teeth, she didn’t know any better and trusted him. As soon as she would leave out the room he would be very mean and say horrible things to me! Shut up you ni**er and all sorts of things, I would cry and be in so much pain, I was just 5yrs old. He was milking the system for sure! I despise of going to the dentist because of this right now. I still have dental issues but refuse to go back! #fail :tea:
