False accusations are one of the cases that a dental attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied over the Board once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, a dentist in San Antonio failed to do so.

On or about January 14, 2012. the dentist performed moderate (Level 2) sedation on the minor patient, without a Level 2 sedation permit.

On or about January 14, 2012, the dentist fell below the minimum standard of care by failing to make, maintain, and keep adequate records for her minor patient. Specifically, the records did not include:

  1. findings and charting of clinical and radiographic oral examination;
  2. a treatment plan including recommendations and treatment options; and
  3. an appropriate time-oriented anesthesia record.

Subsequently, the dentist fell below the minimum standard of care by failing to make, maintain, and keep adequate dental records on the four patients. The dentist’s records do not include accurate identification of the provider dentist, and confirmable Identification of person making record entries if different from provider dentist; or an explanation of why these items are not recorded.

Specifically, the dental records for the four patients mistakenly identify the dentist as the treating dentist.

As a defense to the complaints filed against her, the dentist denied everything and states that she did everything she could in the scope of her dental practice to do the best treatment for the patient.

Therefore, the Board decided to summon the dentist for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a dental attorney should be hired.

False accusations may compromise your career, which is why a Texas dental attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a dental attorney to provide further defense against your case.

Because the dentist failed to provide a dental attorney to defend her case, the Board then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the dentist and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a dental attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Dental Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
