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

During the time period from April 11, 2011, through November 15, 2012, a dentist from El Paso fell below the minimum standard of care during the dental treatment of the patient. Specifically, the dentist seated a crown with short margins on tooth number 3 and failed to document endodontic testing results or any evaluation of the endodontic condition of tooth number 14 prior to seating a crown on that tooth.

During the time period from May 15, 2012, through November 6, 2012, the same dentist again fell below the minimum standard of care during the dental treatment of another patient. Specifically, she failed to analyze the patient’s periodontal health prior to beginning crown treatment, failed to maintain the patient’s temporary crowns in a stable non-leaking condition, and provided inadequate notice terminating the doctor-patient relationship because such notice did not include a short description of the patient’s present and future needs, or an explanation regarding the consequences of non-treatment.

Because of this, the dentist was summoned by the Board. However, her lack of an experienced and effective nurse lawyer to help her defend her side made her lost the case and got suspended and disciplined.

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.

Because of this, the Board subjected the dentist and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a dental attorney could have helped the case become better for the dentist. So if you ever encounter such an issue, it’s best to contact Dental Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 for a confidential consultation.
