A SHETLAND dentist is to appear before a disciplinary committee in London next month accused of failing to treat two patients properly.
Paul D’Eathe is alleged to have provided substandard dental treatment to a man and a woman at Montfield between 2001 and 2011.
A professional conduct hearing before the General Dental Council (GDC) practice committee will take place at London’s Barbican Centre on 4 November.
D’Eathe was suspended by the GDC for two years in January 2012 after being found guilty of misconduct against 14 other patients, before returning to work at the start of 2014. In allowing him to return to work, the GDB put “robust” conditions in place for 18 months.
The latest charges allege that he failed to provide proper orthodontic treatment to a woman, failed to accurately monitor her and failed to obtain informed consent for her treatment.
