'Dollars and dentists:' Investigating the dental care crisis in the U.S.

Jill Rosenbaum

Jill Rosenbaum

Dollars and Dentists” a joint project of PBS Frontline and the Center for Public Integrity, looked at the consequences of a broken dental care system.

The project reveals the consequences of a ruptured dental care system and investigates how a new breed of corporate dental chains are filling the gaps. Reporters counted at least 14 major chains, owned by private equity groups. But, they discovered that because they are largely owned or backed by private equity firms, there is little publicly available information about them.

In this piece, Frontline Producer Jill Rosenbaum shares how the investigation got started, where they found data, who the key sources were and some ideas of stories that are ripe for coverage.
