    Practiced for over 50 years.It is crazy for a Dentist to take all the risk and subsidize people on these govt plans. I know a lot of Dentists will not treat because there is such a large loss.eg we get 33 dollars for an extraction that is normally around 160. I can’t even clean the room for 33 dollars.
