When Do You Need a Tennessee Dentist Lawyer?

The Tennessee Board of Dentistry is responsible for ensuring individuals licensed to practice dentistry in the state are prepared, knowledgeable, and qualified. Part of this obligation requires the Board of Dentistry to handle disciplinary actions when a dentist is accused, charged, or convicted of misconduct.

If you are a practicing dentist and are the subject of an investigation or accusations of misconduct, professional or personal, you need the assistance of a Tennessee dentist license. Our team at Surber, Asher, Surber & Moushon, PLLC, handles cases involving alleged misconduct for:

  • Allowing a non-licensed dental hygienist to perform work or services in your office;
  • Failing to meet minimum requirements for continuing education in Tennessee;
  • Practicing dentistry with a suspended or expired license;
  • Failing to meet requirements for CPR training;
  • Committing health care fraud through false or fraudulent billing practices;
  • Issues with substances abuse, drug charges, or driving under the influence; or
  • Intentionally or knowingly misrepresenting administration of controlled substances.

If you are accused of fraud, embezzlement, or other white-collar crime under the Tennessee criminal statutes, it is likely an administrative action will follow. In particular, charges for health care fraud or the unlawful sale of controlled substances can result in revocation or suspension of your dentistry license in Tennessee.

What Actions Will a Tennessee Doctor Take on Your Behalf?

Your hearing before the Board of Dentistry could result in the temporary suspension or permanent revocation of your dentistry licenses. At stake is not only a fine, but the possibility of losing your job, profession, and future career. A Tennessee law firm focused on licensure defense can help prevent these substantial consequences.

On your behalf, a Tennessee dentist lawyer will collect documentation and evidence of your practice, continuing education, and conduct. An experienced Tennessee dentist lawyer will also handle communication with the Board of Tennessee and administrators and represent you in the Board hearing.
