MAY 19, 2016

At Frances Cullen P.C., we have represented many dentists in cases before the licensing board and applicants seeking to become licensed in the state of Georgia. Dentists can be the subject of many types of complaints - often filed by a patient, a patient's family, a former employer or an employee. These kinds of complaints are serious. The Georgia Board of Dentistry looks at every complaint filed.

There is a standard process that you will go through; The process includes the complaint phase, investigation phase and often investigatory interview. We urge you not to go meet with an investigator or go to an investigative interview without legal counsel. You will need help in guiding you through the process. These kinds of cases are cases of first impression. When you provide records, you need to make the best possible impact and provide your dental records in response to a board request.
