Dentists pressed to drill healthy teeth for profit, ex-employees say

Johannah Lancaster took her 3-year-old son to Dental Express for his first checkup, expecting a routine cleaning. 

She never imagined the treatment plan the Niles, Ohio, dentist would come up with after he peeked into Gregory’s mouth for what seemed like only two or three minutes. 

Michael Griesmer said the preschooler needed root canals – seven of them. Stunned, Lancaster asked why he had not even taken X-rays. Griesmer told her they weren’t necessary.

“I figured he is a professional so I trusted him,” she recalls. “If I knew then what I know now, I would have never gone through with any of it.” 

Two weeks later, in May 2013, the dentist put Gregory under and drilled his teeth. The Medicaid bill came to $1,273 – compared to the $61 that Medicaid would have paid for a checkup and cleaning. 

What Lancaster didn’t know then: Dental Express was part of

Sauna Health Benefits: Are saunas healthy or harmful?

A sauna benefits your heart health, as long as you practice sauna safety

Are saunas good for you? Sweating is an impulse that goes far back in human history. About 3,000 years ago, the Mayans of Central America used sweat houses for religious ceremonies and good health. Nearly every culture has its own way of using heat for relaxation, therapy and ritual; ancient Roman baths, modern Turkish steam baths, and trendy American hot tubs are but a few examples.

One of the oldest — and hottest — of these techniques is the sauna. Saunas have been used for thousands of years in Finland, where nearly a third of all adults take them regularly. And saunas are increasingly popular in the United States, where over one million are in use.

Popularity is one thing, safety is another. Are saunas good for your health, or can they be harmful?
