An instance wherein an allegation was charged against a dentist happened on or about September 2, 2009, when the dentist failed to diagnose and treat a patient with a periodontal disease.

The patient was a 45-year-old man complained of the dentist’s failure to diagnose, properly monitor and rightfully treat periodontal disease, resulting in the loss of several teeth and likely future loss of further teeth. She attended her dentist in 1986 and had root canal treatment and crowns fitted and prolonged gum treatment in 1989. She further had prolonged gum treatment again in 1989. The client regularly attended between1990-2009.

During the said time period, regular radiographs were already taken. Some radiographs were taken in September 2009 which confirmed significant bone loss due to advanced periodontal disease.

The patient brought her case, arguing that the dentist failed to use reasonable care and skill in the provision of root canal treatment and in the provision of periodontal treatment from 1987-2009.

The patient complained that the dentist failed to use reasonable care and skill and monitoring of the progression of the periodontal condition and failed to use reasonable care and skill in recording periodontal indices.

Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a dental attorney for your case. There are some dentists who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any dental attorney to properly defend them.

Because of this, the Board subjected the dentist and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a dental attorney could have helped the case become better for the dentist. So if you ever encounter such an issue, it’s best to contact Dental Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 for a confidential consultation.
