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.

During the time period from January 13, 2016, through January 21, 2017, the dentist Respondent failed to meet the minimum standard of care in the treatment of the minor patient. Specifically, she failed to take diagnostic bitewing and panoramic radiographs while the minor patient was under general anesthesia in the operating room, failed to create properly fitting crowns on teeth E and F which were rotated distally and diagnosed food debris on the minor patient’s teeth as deep decay.

During the time period from January 13, 2016, through January 21, 2017, she failed to make, maintain, and keep adequate dental records of the minor patient. Specifically, she failed to include:

a. diagnostic quality radiographs;
b. findings from the radiographs taken on April 5, 2016;
C. accurate intraoral charting:
d. a treatment plan with recommendations and options for tooth T;
e, specific written informed consents for each procedure performed;
f. a clinical note explaining why the minor patient was prescribed
Amoxicillin;
g. an explanation of why these items are not included.

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.
