We are only human after all, which is why a dental license attorney can provide sufficient help if you’re facing cases related to incorrect dental treatment procedures. But there are some who fail to hire a dental license attorney due to fear that they might not provide a good defense when they face the Texas Board of Dental Examiners.

This is what happened to a certain dentist after she failed to provide the right treatment procedure on or about January 5, 2006. The dentist treated a patient because a temporary filling fell out of a sensitive tooth. The patient completed the forms needed to undergo the right treatment needed.

He was advised to be seated to an operatory table by the dentist’s assistant. The assistant then picked up the patient’s tooth and created a mixture to place it on the tooth that was removed. The assistant left the patient for about 5 minutes but returned to take the mixture out of the patient’s tooth.

However, the treatment failed which is why the assistant called the dentist once again. The patient told the dentist that he cannot afford to purchase a crown for the tooth at the time. That’s why the dentist performed a different procedure where she hit the patient’s tooth for 6 to 8 times, which eventually cracked the tooth.

The patient then decided to leave the office instead and pick the tooth that had broken off. The patient resorted to filing a complaint about the Texas Board of Dental Examiners to investigate this incident. The dentist was summoned for a hearing, where she admitted that she advised her assistant.

Unfortunately, the assistant is not a licensed dentist for the job but was still advised to create a mixture and apply it to the patient’s teeth. This was enough evidence for the Texas Board of Dental Examiners to revoke her license as a result of her inaction to apply the mixture, as well as her error of breaking the tooth that’s supposed to be treated.

This is a case that can still be assisted by the right dental license attorney if the dentist only managed to hire one.
