One of the saddest things that can happen to a dentist in Texas is losing his professional dental license. It is a known fact that becoming a licensed dentist in this country is not an easy process. The journey is long which is why it really painful for any dentist to wake up one day realizing that he no longer has a license to practice the dental profession.
The government body that is responsible for the revocation or suspension of the dental license is the Texas State Board Of Dental Examiners (TSBDE). Any dentists found to have violated the laws and regulations of Texas as well as internal rules on workplaces might be subjected to a disciplinary proceeding before the Board. One of the cases filed before the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE) was for a complaint against a dentist alleged to have been guilty of negligence.
In the complaint filed against Jake, a dentist in Texas, it was alleged that during the time period from January 2007 through the present, the dentist fell below the minimum standard of care by failing to make, maintain, and keep adequate dental records on patients H.P, L.P., T.P., J.P., T.G., T.B., V.H., J,W., C.N, AND C.B. Specifically, the records’ deficiencies include, but are not limited to:
• notations of initial blood pressure and pulse
• statement explaining why this vital signs were not obtained
• written informed consents signed by each patient covering all
• treatment provided
• written of the medical history for each patient
• a treatment plan recommendation and treatment option signed by each patient
• diagnostic findings and chartings of clinical
• radiographic oral examination
• documentation of anesthesia administered.
For failure to find the right attorney to handle his case, the dentist was eventually adjudged liable for the case filed against him. The Texas State Board Of Dental Examiners (TSBDE) rendered a decision for the revocation of the dental license with finality. He was not able to appeal the case due again to the same reason that he did not have a reliable dental defense attorney at fromtheearth.com.
