Anthony Haycroft successfully defends a dentist before a Professional Conduct Committee of the General Dental Council
6th April 2022
Anthony Haycroft successfully defended a dentist before a Professional Conduct Committee of the General Dental Council. The case involved various alleged clinical failings in respect of a single patient. The dentist admitted a single failing and the PCC accepted her evidence and found her admitted allegation proven but no others. Although the admitted failing was far below standard, the PCC accepted the defence submissions that following the case of Calhaem there was no misconduct in the case either on public protection grounds or public interest grounds. As a result the case concluded with no action being taken at all upon the dentist’s registration.
Anthony Haycroft was instructed by Stephen Hooper of Clyde & Co, through Susan Willet of MDDUS and the defence expert was Dr Sharon Caro.
