Facing any allegations may compromise your career and a Texas dental attorney could provide you the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a dental attorney to provide further defense against your case.

 

An instance wherein an allegation was charged against a dentist happened on or about September 2, 2009, when the dentist allegedly failed to treat decay and perform adequate root canal treatment

The patient is a 28-year-old Manager from El Paso. During the time of the initial incident, the patient visited the dentist for regular check-ups. The patient visited both dentists on a number of occasions over the years she was there as a patient but had no concerns about her treatment.

However, problems began to emerge for the patient sometime later. When she visited the dentist complaining of severe pain, the dentist noted inflammation around her wisdom tooth and was prescribed antibiotics.

Unfortunately for the patient, the pain did not go away and she was back at the practice not long after, where she saw the dentist who prescribed more antibiotics. The patient returned later that month, still in unbearable pain.

The dentist noted that it was the impaction of her wisdom tooth that was causing her pain and referred her to the hospital for an extraction. The dentist also performed root canal treatment on the tooth on the other side of the one that had been causing her pain.

However, upon examination at the hospital following her referral, the dental surgeon informed the patient that the wisdom tooth was not what was causing pain to the neighboring tooth and the problem tooth was in fact, the one that the dentist has performed root canal treatment on.

Unfortunately, for the patient, x-rays carried out at the hospital revealed that the root canal treatment was not done properly.

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.
