A former Dentist in Massachusetts is accused of putting paper clips in patients' mouths during root canals and billing Medicaid for the steel posts he should have used.  Michael Clair was indicted by a grand jury on various charges including assault and battery and illegally prescribing drugs.  Prosecutors say he hired other dentists for his clinic when his license was suspended and filed claims under their numbers.  They say he also illegally prescribed drugs to staffers who returned medications to him.
