Dental License

As a dentist, you’ve worked hard to obtain your license and establish a successful practice. A threat to your dental license is a threat to your livelihood and future. Losing your professional license could devastate your career. That’s why it’s critical to seek the experienced representation of a dental license defense attorney if a complaint against you is filed to the Dental Board of Ohio. 

Any person can report information showing that a law has been violated to the Dental Board of Ohio. If the Board informs you that you are under investigation, one of the professional license defense attorneys at Jones Law Group can assist you in negotiating and resolving any complaints. We will ensure that you understand the disciplinary process and uphold your rights. Furthermore, we will answer all of your questions, learn as much as we can about your situation, and determine the best way to defend and reinstate your professional license. 


Dental License Defense and Licensing Board Representation

The knowledgeable attorneys at Jones Law Group have assisted dentists, dental assistants, and other dental professionals with cases involving many types of offenses, including the following: 

  • Improper advertising
  • Fraud or deception in applying for or obtaining a license
  • Prescribing drugs in excessive amounts or without legitimate reason
  • Failing to comply with infection control requirements
  • Conviction of a crime
  • Substance abuse
  • Fee sharing
  • Fraud
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Gross negligence
  • Illegal use or duplication of a license

If the Dental Board of Ohio determines that they don’t have jurisdiction after an initial review of your case, the case will be closed. If the Board does have jurisdiction, the case will be assigned to an investigator. The investigator will gather all relevant information about your case for assessment by the Board Secretary. The Board Secretary serves as an advisor and oversees the investigation. 

The investigator may obtain records and interview you and other individuals who are relevant to the complaint. The investigator may also contact hospitals, insurance companies, and pharmacies. Even if the investigation of a complaint is in its early stages, it’s recommended that you have a lawyer by your side to properly represent you throughout the process.
