For the sixth time in 20 years, Red Bank dentist Harry Mahoney is gritting his teeth over the sign that advertises his practice at River Road and Prospect Avenue.
The sign, in the shape of a healthy molar, was busted in half early Sunday, Mahoney tells redbankgreen.
A Red Bank dentist and his office-manager wife were acquitted earlier this week of all charges in a Medicaid fraud case, the Asbury Park Press reports.
After a four-week trial, a jury in state Superior Court in Freehold found dentist Marc Weber not guilty of all four counts that remained against him following an 11-count indictment a year ago, the Press reports. Weber’s wife, Jennifer Barbers, was acquitted on all five counts left against her.
Weber’s Broad Street dental practice, Weber Dental Associates, was also acquitted of all charges, which included health care claims fraud. Barbers alone faced charges of identity theft and theft by deception.

Red Bank’s biggest tooth has been pulled right out of Harry Mahoney’s front lawn.
A large white sign in the shape of a molar that called attention to Mahoney’s dental practice at the corner of River Road and Prospect Avenue for the last 20 years got yanked right off the pole it was hanging from earlier this month.
