"Dentist Accused Of Using Paper Clips In Root Canals"

It seems that this first sentence should read "Medicaid fraud and using paper clips." From the AP:
A former dentist in Massachusetts has pleaded guilty to Medicaid fraud for using paper clips instead of stainless steel posts in root canals. [...]

Authorities say instead of stainless steel posts for root canals, he used sections of paper clips — which can cause pain and even infection — in an effort to save money.
