License Complaint Against Dentist Closed with Finding of No Probable Cause

Posted on Firm News by author

After the dentist received a subpoena and notice of investigation, the dentist hired Nicholson & Eastin, LLP to represent him with the Florida Department of Health. After consideration of the rebuttal statement prepared by the Firm, the Probable Cause Panel for the Board of Dentistry determined that probable cause did not exist and directed that the case against the dentist be closed by the Florida Department of Health. The Firm fully investigated the allegations contained in the preliminary complaint against the dentist, and specifically that the dentist improperly ordered and diverted controlled substances for his personal use. Attorney Parker Eastin identified several inconsistencies in the record and highlighted evidence which demonstrated that the client had not diverted the medication, was not impaired, and had not violated the rules and regulations governing the practice of dentistry.
