North State Law helps North Carolina Dentists Protect Their License When They Have Received a Complaint, Facing Investigation or Facing Disciplinary Action from the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners.

When a North Carolina Dentist faces investigation, license suspension, or revocation, it can be worrisome and stressful. In a profession where your license to practice and reputation is your livelihood, everything you have worked for and your ability to provide is in jeopardy.

You have worked too hard to face this situation alone.

When facing disciplinary actions, investigations, suspension, or revocation, you have the right to counsel to help you protect your license and livelihood.

Nick Dowgul of North State Law has experience representing professionally licensed individuals in front of North Carolina Licensing Boards. As a licensed professional himself, he has a passion for helping clients protect what they have worked so hard to obtain.

How can a North Carolina Dental License Defense Lawyer help me if I am facing licensing issues?

As with any lawyer hired in any situation, their job is to zealously represent their client’s best interests.

In this situation, hiring an experienced Dental License Defense Lawyer allows you access to someone who has experience dealing with licensing boards in North Carolina.

They understand the administrative process and can use that knowledge to help you better and protect your license in front of the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners.

It can quickly become confusing and overwhelming to those unfamiliar with the administrative processes and procedures associated with defending a professional license.

If you’re trying to defend yourself with no experience, that can spell disaster. Your defense can implode due to clerical mistakes or missed deadlines.

Ultimately, hiring an experienced lawyer helps you because you have someone on your side looking out for you and working as hard as you are to protect your license.

Does North State Law Help North Carolina Dental Hygienists when they are facing licensing issues?

North Carolina Dental Hygienists are supervised and regulated by the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners, the very same authority that controls the licensing for dentists.

The regulations and requirements for obtaining a dental hygienist’s license in North Carolina, along with other pertinent topics, are outlined in the North Carolina General Statute Chapter 90, Article 16, also known as the Dental Hygiene Act.

If you are a Dental Hygienist in North Carolina who is dealing with licensing challenges, we at North State Law encourage you to reach out to us to obtain some peace of mind about your licensing situation.

At what point should I hire a lawyer to help me with North Carolina Dental Licensing issues, complaints, and investigations?

As with any lawyer hiring, it is generally best to hire them as soon as possible.

At North State Law, when hired, we jump into action quickly.

Being hired early in the process allows the attorney to launch their own investigation into the claims. It also allows the attorney to better prepare the client for events in the process, such as hearings.

In a hearing situation, the Pharmacist will have to answer questions from the state licensing board. North State Law makes sure our clients are prepared for this type of situation.

Additionally, hiring an attorney earlier gives them more time to build your defense to present to the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners.

Naturally, the more time you give your attorney to prepare your defense, the more detailed and defined it will potentially be when presented.

What are common reasons that North Carolina Dentists face a suspension or revocation of their license?

Call and speak with an experienced North Carolina Dental License Defense Lawyer as soon as you can.

In a situation where your career and financial means are in jeopardy, you’re going to need someone on your side that has experience in administrative legal settings.

In the hours and days right after you receive the notification, you will have many questions that need answers.
