Dental license holders should be wary of their actions as they commit for their duties in the dental clinic. Any error committed by a dentist is subjected to disciplinary proceedings, suspension, or possible revocation of the dental license. Therefore, it’s best to hire a dentist attorney to handle such cases as the dentist-in-question faces the Texas Board of Dental Examiners.

The Texas Board of Dental Examiners has full jurisdiction over all complaints filed against a dentist. These complaints also include falling below the minimum standard for dental care. This kind of incident occurred back in 2012, where a dentist was warned for disciplinary action due to certain errors at work.

The first error occurred on or about May 14, 2012, where the dentist fell below the minimum standard of care when she performed dental treatment to a patient. The dentist performed endodontic treatment on two teeth, but poorly obturated the canals. The dentist provided the patient a restitution for endodontic treatment’s price.

The second incident occurred on or about July 2, 2012, when the dentist took impressions or crowns on two teeth that’s not located on the crown’s position. When seated, the teeth had short margins. Subsequently, another dentist was able to seat the crowns for the said teeth numbers. This error was the actual reason why her records were investigated as the patient filed a complaint against her.

Both actions could have caused further injury to the patient, damage on their teeth, and may experience adverse effects. The Texas Board of Dental Examiners decided to place a disciplinary action against the dentist and her dental license. This ensures that the dentist shall provide better care in her future treatments.
