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.

On or about February 29, 2008, the dentist fell below the minimum standard of care in the dental treatment of her patient in that she failed to meet the minimum standard of care in root canal therapy on tooth #24 of her patient.

Additionally, during the said period of February 29, 2008, 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 written informed consent signed by the patient covering all treatment provided; a notation of initial blood pressure and pulse, or a statement explaining why these vital signs were not obtained.

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.
