In the state of Texas, an individual needs to obtain a dental license before he can be allowed to conduct dental care services. The Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE) imposes certain rules and regulations that must be followed by every professional dentist. This is important because failure to comply with the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE) administrative orders or resolutions may result to the revocation the dental license.
In one case, a Texas dentist named Angelica was charged before the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE) for her alleged violation of certain state laws as well as the Code of Conduct for dentists. The complaint was grounded on a violation of the provisions under the Dental Practice Act.
On or about January 25, 2011, the dentist fell below the minimum standard of care in the dental treatment of one patient.
Specifically, the dentist extracted tooth no. 30 leaving section of the roots intact. Thereafter, the patient was admitted to the hospital on January 25, 2011. The reason for the admission was because of the hemorrhaging at the extraction site. The patient was taken into surgery and then released.
Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE) eventually found her guilty for the charges made against her. As a result, her professional dental license was revoked with finality. According to the Board, what the dentist did was a gross violation of the Texas Dental Act. She placed the life of a patient in a great danger. What she did was very unbecoming of a dentist in Texas.
