Makes one wonder if Democrat Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith, is generating headlines like this below to distract from his own highly suspect egregious proclivities.
CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith says he will charge a Clinton Township man who allegedly operated a dentist office in his basement where he saw one or two patients a day, according to the Associated Press. The suspect’s identity as not been released, but he is scheduled to be formally arraigned Friday.
In a statement release Friday, Smith said police found a dentist chair, an X-ray machine, molds for teeth and other items in the suspect’s home. Smith went on to say authorities “are thankful that someone had the courage to come forward.” The man allegedly used referrals from his local church to find and treat patients.
Now, parents out there, I don’t want to hear about you getting caught tying a string around your child’s deciduous tooth that’s loose and yanking it … ’cause yannow … operating as an unlicensed health professional is 4 year felony in Michigan. You have been warned.
But I digress.
I get it. The ADA lobby has their racket, uh I mean profession, sowed up with government hoops to jump through before their exorbitant fees are collected among themselves with a slice of the sanctioned pie passed along to Lansing. Nothing new there.
Meanwhile, here’s how Lansing handles doling out it’s other licenses…
Not bad enough? Howza ’bout licenses allowed to operate in Detoilet?
It sucks that people cannot find low (or no) cost alternatives to their care without government 'protecting them'
Good post CS!
Michigan patients are now so safe from affordable local initiative in healthcare, a significant percent are unable to access local care at all.
With 990 Health Provider Shortage Areas, MI holds the #3 spot in the country after CA and TX -- all of us states who like to brag about highly-specialized healthcare, and absorb considerable federal funding for same. I don't believe in coincidence when federal dollars and shortages occur together. Or, for that matter, high state regulation and shortages.
The "jobs party" increased healthcare regulatory burden in Lansing for 8 years. It will be interesting to see what happens under oppositional executive/legislative branches.
Good point on last 8 years.
There has been plenty of opportunity to get things done in the RIGHT direction.
I'm honestly so happy my husband's a Vet. There is no way we could have afforded to replace his "cat ate" dentures, and if I knew about this guy, I would have utilized him. U of M, in conjunction with the VA and Congressman Jack Bergman, started a free dental clinic. This clinic is supported by donations only, and ALL DONATIONS (100%) go directly for supplies needed for the clinic to treat veterans. The clinic is staffed by U of M dental resident volunteers.. This is my favorite charity.
