When it comes to cases and complaints regarding dental issues, a dental attorney is needed when attending hearings before the Board. The Board does not allow those who wish to exceed the scope of their practice as a dentist. A certain dentist in Austin could’ve done this but failed to hire a good dental attorney.
On or about March 31, 2011, the dentist engaged in unprofessional conduct by obtaining schedule Ill drugs by fraud.
During the time period from August 1, 2011, through July 1, 2013, the dentist again engaged in dishonorable conduct when she self-prescribed amphetamine (Schedule liN Controlled Substance) and testosterone (Schedule IIIN Controlled Substance) for a non-dental purpose.
She also failed to comply with the DEA record-keeping requirements and did not maintain a drug inventory, dispensing log, adequate invoices, or official order forms.
The Board took action to the case, summoning the dentist to defend against the accusation. Unfortunately, the dentist failed to hire a good dental attorney to help her defend her case.
As a result, the dentist was sentenced to disciplinary action to ensure that she will never commit such acts again.
Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a dental attorney for the 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 defend them. Don’t let the abovementioned dentist’s story happened to you.
The case would have yielded a different result if the dentist was able to hire a dental attorney. So if you also have the same cases or concerns, it’s best to contact Dental Attorney Yong J.
