Dentist struck off for poor practice

A dentist has been struck off the Dental register after being found guilty of causing “actual harm” to patients.  The GDC charged the dentist with misconduct after the professional standards board hearing was told how the very experienced dental professional failed to properly assess one patient and also failed to diagnose and treat a periodontal abscess of another patient over a period of 10 years!

He also faced charges relating to failing to maintain records and to cooperate with the GDC.

A committee stated: “…… poor practice over a long period of time ultimately resulted in actual harm.

“The committee has concluded a period of suspension would not reflect the seriousness of ……….. misconduct, which is fundamentally incompatible with professional registration.”
