Has nothing to do directly with dentistry or technology. It has everything to do with the issues at the heart of the healthcare debate. Obviously a significant number of people and politicians believe that our healthcare system will be better and more efficient if it is run by a central government command center than it is by private individuals and businesses. They continue to believe this despite all the evidence to the contrary. Even more disconcerting, as the linked article reveals, when the government gets involved efficiency and best practices are replaced by higher costs, cronyism and rule making.
Most dentists and physicians I know just want to practice to the best of their ability, make a decent living and be left alone. Unfortunately as it stands now that will not be an option.
