A Jacksonville pediatric dentist under investigation by the state of Florida is now the target of a class-action lawsuit alleging his practice is a front for a "sadistic and systematic scheme of physical and psychological torture and abuse" of "utterly defenseless" children.
In a lawsuit filed this week in the 4th Judicial Circuit Court in Duval County, Fla., four plaintiffs accuse Dr. Howard Schneider of assault, battery, false imprisonment and intentionally inflicting "severe emotional distress" spanning decades from his office.
The lawsuit filed Wednesday follows days of protests outside Schneider's office and a wave of complaints from parents alleging he physically abused their children, botched their dental work, and stonewalled parents and investigators when his methods were questioned.
It also comes just days after the Florida Attorney General's Office confirmed Schneider's practice was under active investigation for alleged Medicaid fraud.

I don't understand why they are not charging them! This is child abuse! This is a sick group of people (and I am including the whole office) that could do this to someone, let alone children, for money.
I say we pull all of their teeth, without any numbing, and then put them in jail. I'm sure that the smooth gums will make them LOTS of new friends!

This is just old school dentistry. It's not sunshine and lollipops, kiddies.
You're as sick as that guy. You're the other face of the same medal.
