A Pasco County dentist is accused of pulling out perfectly healthy teeth to make more money.
Dr. Miranda Smith worked for Giggles Dentistry for Children and Adults. Patients complained she billed Medicaid for X-rays, anesthesia and procedures that were never performed.
One woman said Smith told her that her daughter had eight cavities and needed urgent dental work. The mom took the child to another dentist who said the girl had none.
Investigators say Smith removed healthy teeth to sell patients dentures and make larger claims.
She's charged with Medicaid fraud.
