The attorneys of The Health Law Firm have represented dentists in legal situations unique to their profession, for decades.
Being threatened with termination from a dental insurance provider panel? We have done it.
Received notice of an investigation of a patient complaint against you? We have done it.
Received a request for dental records for a Medicaid audit? We have done it.
Do you have a notice that you must appear before the Board of Dentistry to answer questions about your application for a dental license? We have done it.
Do you have a demand for repayment of insurance or Medicaid payments you have received? We have done it.
Whether it is a Department of Health investigation regarding a complaint made by a patient, an audit by Medicaid or by a dental insurance company, or the threat of a dental malpractice case, our attorneys have experience in defending the dentist.
At the first notice of a possible complaint, audit, or investigation, you should contact us to begin legal representation. Most dental professional liability (dental malpractice) insurance companies will pay your legal expenses for such legal representation. Don't waste this benefit or blow the opportunity to mount an active defense at the earliest opportunity.
In Medicaid audit defense, we have been able to reduce claims for repayment of Medicaid from millions of dollars to a small percentage.
We have also provided legal representation to dentists who have charged with being impaired because of drugs, alcohol or mental illness. We negotiate and provide legal representation for dentists being forced to undergo compelled mental health examinations or referred to the Professionals Resource Network (PRN).
We have sued to dissolve illegally owned dental practices and have structured legal dental management companies which comply in every respect with laws and regulations.
We can represent you in administrative hearings (federal or state) Board of Dentistry hearings and civil litigation in state or federal courts.
Our attorneys also provide legal advice on structuring business ventures involving dental practices and dentists, buying and selling dental practices, incorporating dental practices, reviewing and negotiating dental contracts and all aspects of the practice of dentistry. We can provide formal legal opinion letters and assist in conducting due diligence for purchases, mergers, acquisitions and financing of dental practices and related businesses.
