Being a dentist is not an easy thing to do especially if you work as a dentist.The demands from work can be challenging. As a matter of fact, there are times when you may end up getting a complaint from patients or their watchers. Most of the time, the complaint can lead to a suspension or dismissal from work. Sometimes, it can even result to the filing of an administrative case before the Texas State Board of Dental Examiner (TSBDE).

This is the reason why it is really important for every professional dentist in the state of Texas to be connected with the right dental defense attorney. There is a need to hire an effective and efficient lawyer if you want to protect your dental license. Take note that the Texas State Board of Dental Examiner (TSBDE) has the authority to revoke or suspend any professional dental license. However, the order of suspension or revocation can only be issued after hearing on the merits of the case.

In one case involving a dentist in Texas, named Amelia, she was terminated from work due to her malpractice. The complaint reads as follows:

During the time period from March 23, 2013, through November 22, 2013, dentist fell below the minimum standard of care by failing to make, maintain, and keep adequate dental records on dental patient 1. Specifically, the records do not include written informed consent for the endodontic treatment on tooth number 21, a treatment plan with recommendations and treatment options, or an explanation why these items are not recorded.

Unfortunately for dentist Amelia, she was not able to find the right lawyer to handle her case. The Texas State Board of Dental Examiner (TSBDE) ordered for the suspension of her license.
