However, what really needs to be discussed is the utter lack of care and concern the "dental professionals" of Douglas County, and, for that matter, the entire state of Kansas simply refuse to participate in Medicaid. Why are these "caring professionals" so darn cheap and miserly?

Ok, the Medicaid reimubursement rate is low. Big deal....these phat cat "doctors of dentistry" rake in plenty of money as it is. Why won't they participate in Kansas Medicaid so that little kids get quality care, despite the fact they are impovershied.

"We"....Douglas County......have these one or two day events annually and "We" are supposed to "forgive" the reality the greedy "dental professionals" simply refuse to participate in Medicaid???? Incredible.

Adding injury to insult is the very real reality that these trailer park dental clinic one day events aren't about dentistry.....which is about the saving of teeth....they're about the easiest and quickest way out. Fast forward to the "annual event" for adults: These "dentists" don't look to save teeth.....they yank 'em; pull 'em out; extract them.....when they COULD root canal; crown; etc. Wait.....those procedures take time and might compel the ever so greedy dentist to actually, really, DONATE some time in follow up visits to PRESERVE a tooth. That'd be too much like right.

The whole idea of these warehouse operations is unctuous. Again, let the dentists of Douglas County have the courage to admit they don't participate with Medicaid because they believe they're not getting paid enough. Creeps.

If Alceste's dentist don't participate in Medicaid, Alceste educates the duffus and then goes to a dentist (and the list is VERY small) who does. spit.
