Providing Experience and Insight in Defense of Atlanta-Area Dentists

Accusations of criminal conduct or breaching standards of practice require a strong and aggressive response.  The Georgia Board of Dentistry is at times unreasonable and difficult to deal with.  Your career as a dentist can be tarnished, if not terminated. You need a dedicated advocate to protect your rights.

Do not face a dental board or court on your own. You need to be educated about the information contained in O.C.G.A. § 43-11-47, O.C.G.A. § 43-1-19, and Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. Ch. 150-8-.01, Georgia's laws governing unprofessional conduct and disciplinary action against dental practitioners. You need attorney Melvin M. Goldstein.

Effective representation is needed before the governing body (created under the authority granted by O.C.G.A. § 43-11-2), consisting of nine fellow dentists, one hygienist and one non-dental professional, that determines the fate of your dental license. The board regulates all aspects of the dental profession, including treating patients under general anesthesia or conscious sedation ( O.C.G.A. § 43-11-21).

A Former Dental Board Attorney Now Fighting to Preserve Your Career

The insight we provide clients in dealing with the state dental board or criminal courts is rare and valuable. Prior to establishing the law office of Melvin M. Goldstein,, Mr. Goldstein provided representation in prosecuting cases before the dental board. When dentists were called in for investigations or hearings on allegations of breaching standards of practice or criminal conduct, they often faced him.

At Your Side to Protect Your Rights

That experience has provided Mr. Goldstein with the unique point-of-view you need when you career is threatened. He maintains a rapport with the group from his past prosecutorial background and current defense work. He has written an article for the Georgia Dental Association Action magazine on defense of dentists and has lectured to various dental associations on insurance and licensing matters.

More importantly, he ensures that his clients' rights are protected against the powerful government. You have rights that need protection and someone to look out for your best interests.
