san diego dental license defense lawyers

All dental professionals take an oath to provide the best, most honest, and most comprehensive care to each patient who comes through the door. Every dental appointment opens the door to potential legal ramifications if a patient feels their dental professional works in an unethical manner, which leaves professionals at risk of losing their dental license. When a dental professional is accused of being unethical or unprofessional in the office, it opens the door to a myriad of legal issues that require the assistance of an experienced dental license defense attorney.

How Complaints Work

Every state is different, but most states require any complaint filed against a dental professional goes through the Dental Board in the state where the professional is licensed. The Board reviews the complaint to verify the veracity of the complaint as well as the person issuing the complaint. All dental professionals undergoing investigation by the board as the result of a complaint receive notification of the investigation immediately. This allows the professional a chance to obtain legal counsel for the ongoing investigation.

The most common complaints filed against dental professionals across the country include the following:

– Drug abuse
– Alcohol abuse
– Gross negligence
– Criminal activity
– Gross ineptitude

Anyone with any contact with the licensed dental professionals in any office have a legal right to file a complaint with the state board if they suspect a dental professional is not adhering to the ethical and/or legal requirements of the profession. This includes patients, family members of patients, employees, suppliers, and even health-care providers who work with the office and the professionals employed in the office.

What Happens During Investigation

The opening of an investigation against a dental professional doesn’t automatically mean the professional will lose his or her license. It means an investigation is performed to determine the accuracy and truth of the investigation. It’s not always damaging to the professional as not all investigations show the professional is doing anything wrong. However, being investigated for any misconduct in the office is devastating to anyone with a dental license. A dental license defense attorney works to disprove the complaints filed against a particular professional to reduce the risk of their license being either suspended or revoked at the end of the investigation.

The risks associated with a complaint and investigation of this nature include a dental professional’s license being revoked, which affects his or her entire livelihood. Now is not the time to forgo legal assistance. The investigation is broken down into two parts.

1. Inspection: When a complaint is filed against a dental professional, it’s forwarded to inspectors within the state’s Dental Board. Inspectors perform a thorough inspection of the facility in which the dental professional works as a way of ensuring that the equipment is up-to-date and in working order, hygienic practices are being met, and whether conditions in and around the office are hazardous or harmful in any way. If the inspectors find the facility is not adhering to basic laws, fines are issued, the dental professional has to pay them, and the conditions found unsatisfactory must be handled or the office faces further legal issues.
2. Investigation: This only occurs if a dental professional is accused of criminal activity. When this type of complaint is filed, investigators comb through every piece of available information provided to the board, as well as any information the office and the dental professional has anything to do with. Guilty parties are then reported to the local District Attorney so the state can begin preparing for a case.

Following guilt on any level, dental professionals are placed on a period of probation that prohibits them from using their dental license in any legal capacity. As the investigation continues, charges are filed, and a judge makes a final decision, it could mean revocation of a license. This means the party in question loses his or her dental license and is no longer legal able to work in the same industry again. Notice of complaint against a dental professional is the time when it’s appropriate to seek legal counsel to protect future lifestyles, work, and life for the accused party.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
