Dental Board Investigation — What Should I Do?

Protect Your License

The North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners administers licensing exams for dental professionals. It also verifies licenses and keeps track of dentists’ standing with regard to their professional license. The Board enforces laws and regulations with respect to dentists and dental hygienists. The Board takes these matters very seriously, and dental professionals must also. If you do not pay close attention to the rules of the dental profession, you can jeopardize your license. If you have any questions about what may be considered a violation of these laws and regulations, call Remington & Dixon professional license defense attorneys.

Know Your Insurance Policy

Many insurance policies provide coverage for expenses arising out of licensing board matters. This can include coverage for when the Board investigates a dentist based on a complaint made by a patient or patient’s dental insurance company. As a dental professional, it is important that you know what your insurance policy covers and whether you are protected if a patient complains to the Board, or if an insurance company accuses you of wrongdoing. The best way to know what your policy covers is to contact your insurance provider. Call your insurance company and find out whether you will be protected from the costs of a professional license investigation.
