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 dentist from El Paso, Texas happens to be one of them. During the initial time of the incident, the dentist was working in a small clinic in El Paso and had been in that position for more than five years already.
On or about February 14, 2007, the dentist fell below the minimum standard of care in the dental treatment of her patient. Specifically, she failed to properly make and seat immediate dentures by leaving an occlusion on the first and second molars.
On or about January 18, 2007, and May 21, 2007, the dentist again 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 written review of medical history, a limited review of a medical exam, or written informed consent for treatment provided.
The dentist was given the chance to defend herself and denied all the accusations and cases filed against her. However, without enough evidence to support her case and a dental attorney to help her, she was disciplined and subjected to her license for revocation.
If you ever undergo any cases such as this, never hesitate to seek help from an experienced attorney. If not, your license might get disciplined.
Losing your license can compromise your career. However, a skilled dental attorney can greatly help you in major cases such as this. For assistance regarding your license case, it’s best to contact Dental Attorney Yong J. An by contacting him at (832) 428-5679.
