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 abandoning her patient.
On or about June 9, 2012, the dentist abandoned her patient and failed to give the patient a minimum of 30 days written notice of her intent to discontinue the undertaken treatment, a short description of the patient’s current status, a short description of the patient’s present and future needs, an explanation regarding the consequences of non-treatment, and a clear statement emphasizing that the dentist was available to provide any emergency treatment necessary to prevent patient harm during the 30-day period.
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.
