Defense Against Accusations Of Dentist Misconduct And Professional Malpractice

The Dental Board of California regulates the practice of dentistry. Under the California Dental Practice Act, dentists and licensed dental assistants may face license suspension and possible criminal charges for conduct violations. There are administrative rules regarding licensees in addition to the act that define those violations. A complaint can be filed against dental professionals who are accused of engaging in behavior including, but not limited to:

  • Criminal conduct
  • Practicing beyond the authorized scope of practice
  • Negligence
  • Practicing while intoxicated
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • Allowing professional duties to be performed by unauthorized staff
  • Abuse of patients
  • Failure to maintain proper records

Proactively Fight To Keep Your License

The Dental Board has established an enforcement unit to investigate reported criminal and administrative violations by licensees. If the investigation yields evidence that violations likely took place, suspected violators are referred for criminal or administrative prosecution. By this point, you need an experienced attorney to defend you against potentially disastrous outcomes that include license revocation or jail time.

We will investigate the charges against you thoroughly, starting with the complaint and the complainant. If the charges have no justification, we will do our utmost to bring the proceedings to a swift conclusion. If a hearing is necessary, we will provide calm, professional representation in making your case to the administrative law judge. Should an appeal to civil or criminal court be necessary, we can confidently continue to defend your rights.
