Dentists facing cases they never committed should hire a dental attorney to strengthen their defense. Professional help can provide a better form of defense against Board as dentist faces an accusation of any allegations they wish to deny. This is just one of the many cases the dentist from Houston should have known had she only hired a dental attorney to help her.

On or about June 15, 2013, a dentist from Austin, Texas incorrectly diagnosed tooth letter A as being ankylosed and referred a minor patient for extraction of tooth letter A. In fact, tooth letter A was not ankylosed and extraction were not necessary. The dentist incorrectly diagnosed tooth letter J with decay and referred a minor patient for extraction of tooth letter J. In fact, tooth letter J did not have decay but was ankylosed, requiring extraction. The dentist failed to diagnosed tooth letter B with decay.

Subsequently, on the same day on or about June 15, 2013, the dentist fell below the minimum standard of care by failing to make, maintain, and keep adequate records for a minor patient. Specifically, the records did not include findings and charting of the clinical and radiographic oral examination and diagnostic radiographs, or any statement as to why these items were not recorded.

The dentist was given the chance to defend against her case and present herself to the Board. Despite her explanation, the Board placed her under disciplinary action but without any suspension whatsoever. Hiring the right dental attorney for this case would be of great help, knowing that she denied the accusations.
