In Texas, the government has created a special agency that has the jurisdiction to handle controversies and cases involving the dental profession. Every dentist subjected to a disciplinary proceeding or administrative case before the Board is given an opportunity to be heard and defend himself from all accusations. This every dentist with a pending case before the Board is to encourage hiring a dental attorney.
Unfortunately, there are some dentists who fail to find the right dental attorney to handle their cases. As a result, most of them would be adjudged liable for the complaints. This usually leads to the revocation of a professional nursing license. This is what happened to a dentist in Houston, Texas. During the time of the initial incident, she was practicing her license in a dental clinic in Houston and had been working for 2 years already.
On or about September 5, 2015, the dentist failed to diagnose a mandible fracture following the extraction of tooth number 32 and failed to inform the patient of the fracture and give the patient post-operative instructions related to the fracture. The treatment for the fracture was not different due to the alleged delay in diagnosis.
Because of this, the dentist was summoned by the Board to give her a fair chance to defend her case. She was given the chance to defend herself at the Board.
Unfortunately, she was found her guilty for the complaint against her and her license was suspended. She lost the case simply because the dentist failed to find an effective and efficient dental attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake that she did.
