In Texas, the government has created a special agency that has the jurisdiction to handle controversies and cases involving the dental profession. Every dentist subjected to a disciplinary proceeding or administrative case before the Board is given an opportunity to be heard and defend himself from all accusations. This every dentist with a pending case before the Board is to encourage hiring a dental attorney.
Unfortunately, there are some dentists who fail to find the right dental attorney to handle their cases. As a result, most of them would be adjudged liable for the complaints. This usually leads to the revocation of a professional nursing license. This is what happened to a dentist in Houston, Texas for doing implants fitted that fell out four days later.
During the time period from August 1, 2011, through July 1, 2013, the dentist engaged in dishonorable conduct. Specifically, she self-prescribed amphetamine (Schedule liN Controlled Substance) and testosterone (Schedule III N Controlled Substance) for a non-dental purpose.
During the said period of time, the dentist also failed to comply with the DEA record-keeping requirements and did not maintain a drug inventory, dispensing log, adequate invoices, or official order forms.
During the time period from June 9, 2010, through February 13, 2014, the dentist again engaged in dishonorable conduct in the prescribing of drugs for her patients when she prescribed Ambien (Schedule IV Controlled Substance) to her patients without a dental purpose.
Because of this, the dentist was summoned by the Board to give her a fair chance to defend her case. She was given the chance to defend herself at the Board.
Unfortunately, she was found her guilty for the complaint against her and her license was suspended. She lost the case simply because the dentist failed to find an effective and efficient dental attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
