A rogue dentist called Frederick McCrouth 
Brought misery to many a ones mouth
Caused his patients great pain
Done for profit and gain
Eventually their teeth all fell south.

Frederick's nickname was' dentist from hell'
Gold implants at a high price he would sell
He was caught in a trap
Is now up on a rap 
Justice caught him and he's now in a cell.

Thank you Connie, there's always someone out to fleece others, but you're right, karma wins in the end. Tom.

Thanks S.O., must admit I never mind going to the dentist yet some dread it. Tom.

Awesome limerick, Tom! Had a great laugh thinking of a dentist selling gold fillings. Your rhyme is perfect and you adhered to the alphabetical requirement with ease. Best wishes in the contest! Hugs, carolyn

Thank you very much Carolyn, a bit trickier having to keep it alphabetical took a bit longer than usual. Tom.

WoW! Tom, You rose to the challenge with this limerick hands down. Freddie got what he deserved. I bet he's wishing that he went by the book and not some greedy crook! It looks like a winner to me. I wish you the best of luck in the contest:-) Alexis

G'day Tom … a dentist causes so much double pain Tom. First it's the mouth and then the wallet, so I gather that a toothache is a legal form of blackmail - a great limerick Tom - Lindsay
