In the past years, the Texas State Board of Dental Examiner (TSBDE) is known to have regularly filed cases against erring dentists that resulted to the revocation of the professional licenses. A professional dentist charged with the commission of a violation or omission of an act needs to be assisted by a proper legal counsel in order to present her defenses in a proper way. The assistance of a good lawyer also comes in handy in ensuring that the legal procedure is being followed.
Unfortunately, in one case filed before the Texas State Board of Dental Examiner (TSBDE), a dentist named Alex failed to hire the right attorney to handle his case. One day, the dentist received notice of a complaint filed against him. It was shown that the following allegations were made:
During the time period from December 11 through April 2012, the dentist failed to prevent an unlicensed dentist from performing acts that may not be delegated to a person not licensed as a dentist.
Specifically, Alex permitted his unlicensed brother to practice dentistry.
During the same time period, he also engaged in unprofessional and dishonorable conduct by making false statements on a legal document related to the practice of dentistry.
He made false statements on Medicaid claim forms by permitting her unlicensed brother to file Medicaid claims under the dentist’s Medicaid provided number for services provided by Alex’s brother.
While the Texas State Board of Dental Examiner (TSBDE) conducted a hearing of the case, the dentist failed to hire the services of a Texas nurse attorney. Because of this, he was not able to defend himself. As such, his allegedly dishonorable conducts led to the loss of his dental license.
