It’s best to seek the help of a dental attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some dentists tend to face these results instead without thinking that dental attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
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.
This is what happened to a certain dentist in El Paso, Texas on March 2014. During the time of the incident, a patient suffering from toothache went to see the dentist. A filling was performed. However, this did not relieve the toothache and the patient underwent some further dental treatment.
The dentist then advised the patient that he required root canal surgery which was performed. Following this treatment, the patient started to have headaches and eventually he had to be referred to the Consultant ENT Surgeon where a foreign body was removed which was thought to be a piece of the endodontic instrument which it was thought arose from the root canal treatment.
The Board gave the dentist the chance to defend herself. However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself, especially when the dental results were brought up to her. Therefore, the Board placed her license to a disciplinary action instead.
