Facing any allegations may compromise your career and a Texas dental defense attorney could provide you the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a dental defense attorney to provide further defense against your case. This is what happened to a certain dentist in San Antonio in 2002.
On or about October 7, 2008, the dentist failed to meet the minimum standard of care requirements in the extraction of tooth #15 and failed to refer to one of her patient for appropriate care.
Subsequently, during the time period on or about October 7, 2008 through October 17, 2008, the dentist fell below the minimum standard of care by failing to make, maintain, and keep adequate dental records on her patient when the record does not include: a written informed consent signed by the patient covering all treatment provided; a written review of the medical history for the patient; or billing and payment records.
Because of this, the dentist was disciplined and her license was suspended.
Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a dental defense attorney for your case. There are some dentists who missed their chances to get their license saved just because they weren’t able to hire any dental defense attorney to properly defend them. Don’t let the abovementioned dentist’s story happened to you.
The Texas State Board of Dental Examiners Enforcement Division is the state licensing board that disciplines a dentist based on any negligence found. During this investigative process, the dentist has the right to counsel. Therefore, it is essential to have experienced counsel when seeking defense and protection of your license.
