Dentistry License Defense

South Carolina Dentistry License Defense Attorneys

The South Carolina Board of Dentistry enforces the governing practice act and regulations. A South Carolina dental license complaint may be filed against a dentist, dental hygienist, or dental tech licensed in South Carolina.

Conduct for which a licensee may be disciplined includes, but is not limited to:

  • criminal conduct;
  • practicing beyond the authorized scope of practice or allowing professional duties to be performed by unauthorized staff;
  • negligence/substandard practice;Dentistry License Defense
  • practicing while intoxicated or impaired by alcohol, drugs, or mental disability;
  • drug abuse or addiction;
  • alcohol abuse or addiction;
  • inappropriate conduct with patients;
  • filing a false claim for reimbursement; or
  • failing to maintain proper records.

Depending upon the circumstances, a South Carolina Board of Dentistry complaint may result in a license denial, public reprimand, suspension, or even license revocation. Our South Carolina Board of Dentistry Defense attorneys are here to help.

It is important to understand that receiving a South Carolina dental board complaint does not mean that you are guilty or that you have done anything wrong.

Responding to a South Carolina Board of Dentistry Complaint

Whether made by a patient, employee, or another dental professional, a complaint made to the South Carolina Board of Dentistry will prompt an investigation provided that the facts, if true, would constitute a violation of the practice act.

If a South Carolina dental board complaint is filed against you, you can expect to receive a call from a South Carolina Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (LLR) investigator.  Any information obtained during the course of the investigation may be used against you.

Even if the investigator tells you that he or she simply wants to hear your side of the story so that he/she can close the case, it is absolutely critical that you speak with a South Carolina dentist license attorney before discussing the case with an investigator. Remember, the investigator works for LLR, and is not necessarily looking out for your best interest.

Don’t risk your professional livelihood. When contacted by an investigator concerning a misconduct matter, call one of our South Carolina professional license defense attorneys for a free consultation before its too late.

South Carolina Board of Dentistry Discipline

When a South Carolina dentist is found guilty in committing professional misconduct, he or she will be subject to disciplinary action which can include a reprimand, suspension, revocation, as well as a fine.  Depending upon the circumstances, a dental professional may also be subject to a monitoring agreement with the South Carolina Recovering Professional Program (“RPP”).

You have the right to a hearing before the South Carolina Dentistry Board.

Handling a Referral to RPP

If you are accused of experiencing problems related to alcohol or drug abuse, you may be referred to RPP for an assessment to determine whether you need treatment and continued monitoring. RPP operates under a contract between LRADAC and LLR.  It is the approved monitoring program for licensees of the South Carolina Board of Dentistry. RPP is tasked with ensuring you are safe to return to practice. If you are referred for an evaluation with RPP, give us a call to discuss the facts of your case and hear how we can help.

The Strom Law Firm, LLC represents and defends South Carolina professionals in disciplinary matters involving allegations of professional misconduct as well in criminal matters.  If you are a dentist, dental hygienist, or a dental tech and are being investigated by LLR, give us a call for a free consultation. 803.252.4800

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…
Professional Representation, Satisfying Legal Outcome!
My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
A Winning Team at Strom Law Firm!
John Alphin was great. We basically worked together for 22 months. Bakari Sellers was also on the team and together those 2 guys were fabulous. Won the case and I’m still a client of Strom law firm. Thank you and awesome law firm.
