Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a dental attorney for the 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 defend them.

On or about July 17, 2010, a dentist based in San Antonio fell below the minimum standard of care in the dental treatment of her patient. Specifically, she failed to perform clinical tests on teeth numbers 7 and 19, including the tooth sensitivity test, prior to recommending and performing root canal therapy on teeth numbers 7 and 19.

During the period from July 17, 2010, through April 7, 2011, the dentist fell below the minimum standard of care by failing to make, maintain, and keep adequate dental records on her patient. Specifically, the record does not include a signed treatment plan including recommendations and treatment options.

Furthermore, the dentist was also accused of routinely giving young patients multiple and unnecessary root canals and crowns and of performing invasive procedures without parental knowledge or consent.

The dentist was summoned by the court to appeal her case. And even though she had the chance to explain her side, her lack of an effective dental attorney to help her resulted in her disciplinary actions.

The case could have resulted in a lesser disciplinary action, only if the dentist hired an effective dental attorney to help her win her case.

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