The dental license is proof that you’re committing as a professional who intends to provide dental care to patients with full integrity. However, there are some dentists who might have performed with dishonorable conduct due to unfair dealings with a patient. This happened in Texas on April 15, 2014.

The incident occurred when a dentist over-diagnosed the caries of a patient, requiring her to perform restorations on teeth numbers 3-5, 12, 13, 18, 19, 21, 30 and 31. However, the said restorations were not supported by radiographic and clinical records. The dentist also followed-up a treatment planned on a buildup and crown on tooth number 4. However, the same treatment was not supported by radiographical and clinical records as well.

The said misconduct done by the dentist may cause her dental license to receive disciplinary action, suspension or revocation. The Texas Board of Dental Examiners are the ones who overview such cases. Therefore, the dentist was summoned for a hearing regarding the complaint filed against her. These are the instances where the help of a dental license attorney is much needed.

The dentist was given a chance to defend against the case. She stated that she has done the typical treatment and recommendation possible for patients who experience such dental health problem. But this defense was not allowed due to the fact that radiographical records and clinical records have proven that restoration is not recommended for the patient.

Therefore, the Texas Board of Dental Examiners placed her dental license into disciplinary action to ensure that she will commit to performing better in the future. The best choice for issues like this is to hire a dental license attorney for a consultation first before proceeding to the hearing session with the Board.

If you’re undergoing such cases, a confidential consultation is recommended as it can assist you in your case. For more details or assistance, you may contact Dental License Attorney Yong J.
