The Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving dentists in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional dental practitioners all over the state of Texas. Any professional dentist who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE) may be subjected to penalties or fines. As a matter of fact, the dental license can even be suspended or revoked.
This is the reason why every dentist in Texas is expected to act with prudence in practicing the profession. In the case of a dentist named Herbert, he was not expecting that his practice would come to an end soon. A case was filed against him, which provides that:
During the time period from July 2014, through August 2015, the professional dentist habitually intemperate in the use of drugs. In January 2014, dentist voluntarily became a participant in the Professional Recovery Network (PRN). In August 2014, dentist completed an in-patient treatment program as required by PRN based on a relapse.
During the time period from July 2015, through August 2015, dentist relapsed again, which was confirmed by a positive hair test for cocaine. A PRN-approved provider evaluated dentist and recommended a 90-day in-patient treatment program.
Instead of sending a reply to the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE), the professional dentist simply disregarded the notice. He did not do anything to respond nor to defend himself. Because of this, the Board decided to make an adverse licensure action. He was ordered to stop the practice of his profession.
