Being a dentist, a lot of people are expecting you to do your job righteously and giving the proper care and treatment to patients without making a mistake. But in the case of a dentist in Carrollton, Texas who did a mistake that puts him in a bad situation. The dentist was disciplined by the Board, in which he failed to hire a dental attorney.

On or about November 22, 2017, a patient filed a complaint against the dentist with the Board. The complaint alleges that in 2016, the patient suffered a grand mal seizure while walking her dog. She fell and hit her head on the concrete pavement and suffered a concussion. The next day, one of her front veneers popped off when she was eating something. Since the dentist who placed her veneers had passed away, the patient saw the dentist to replace all her veneers in case they were loose.

The patient’s first appointment with the dentist was on or about June 16, 2016. At this appointment, the Dentist took new patient photos and replaced the veneer on tooth number 8, which had popped off the dentist and the patient discussed the replacement of veneers on teeth numbers 5-12.

On July 26, 2016, the dentist prepared teeth numbers 5-12 for veneer placement, the dentist removed the existing veneers and reshaped the tooth structure. The dentist took a full upper impression. The dentist made temporary veneers. But the patient said that she is unhappy with her new veneer.

On or about August 5, 2016, the dentist bonded veneers for teeth numbers 5-12. On August 16, 2016, the dentist separated teeth numbers 5-12 to permit floss passage.

As a result of the above incident, the dentist is subject to disciplinary action in that the dentist engaged in unprofessional conduct and committed repeated acts of negligence, and exhibited incompetence in his care and treatment of the patient.
