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 May 13, 2014, a dentist from El Paso fell below the standard of care during and after the extraction of a patient’s tooth number 12. Specifically, the patient presented for root canal therapy on tooth number 12. A fellow dentist attempted and failed to perform root canal therapy on tooth number 12. Subsequently, the dentist performed an extraction of tooth number 12. The dentist failed to diagnose the perforation of the patient’s sinus cavity from the extraction of tooth number 12 after performing the procedure.

As a result, the dentist’s fellow dentist placed acrylic bridge material which penetrated the sinus cavity of the patient.

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.
