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.
On or about June 16, 2010, a dentist from San Antonio fell below the minimum standard of care in the dental treatment of her patient when she accidentally aspirated a root of an extracted tooth during a dental procedure.
After monitoring the patient in the office and presuming that she had not aspirated the tooth fragment, the dentist sent her home with instructions to go to an emergency room if she had difficulty breathing. In fact, the patient had aspirated the tooth fragment, which required hospitalization for its extraction.
During the time period from July 16, 2010, through May 3, 2011, the same dentist failed to timely report the hospitalization of her patient as a possible consequence of dental services.
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.
However, without a skilled dental attorney to defend her, she lost her case. Because of this, the dentist has been subjected to discipline.
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.
