Defending Dentists From Malpractice Claims

License Defense Is Crucial For Your Career

Without a dental license, your career can deflate permanently. If you run your own practice, your employees stand to lose their jobs, too. Our lawyers can help you protect your license when you run into serious issues. We have worked with the licensing boards of numerous industries, including the American Dental Association and the Alaska Board of Dental Examiners. Having successfully defended numerous clients’ licenses before these organizations, we will take every measure available to ensure that you keep your hard-won dental license.
