Default Dentist threatens to report mom for not making appointment for kids' 7 fillings

Ok, just....wow.

Apparently, the government has gotten a little more into the role of Big Bro than I had thought.

Quote:
John Rutkauskas, the CEO of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, sent the following statement to Yahoo Lifestyle: “Dental care providers are required to report injuries that are concerning for abuse or neglect to child protective services in accordance with local or state legal requirements. In terms of dental neglect in particular, the AAPD defines it as ‘willful failure of parent or guardian, despite adequate access to care, to seek and follow through with treatment necessary to ensure a level of oral health essential for adequate function and freedom from pain and infection.’ To the best of his or her ability, the pediatric dentist should be certain that the caregiver understands the explanation of the disease and its implications and, when barriers to the needed care exist, attempt to assist the family in finding financial aid, transportation, or public facilities for needed services. If, despite these efforts, the parent fails to obtain therapy, the case should be reported to the appropriate child protective services agency.”
