Doctors and Dentists

Utah Medical License Defense Attorneys

Doctors, physician’s assistants and dentists provide some of the most important services in our society. As a result, Utah authorities impose strict and aggressive licensing requirements on all medical professionals. When professional licensing boards suspect that a physician or dentist may have committed even a minor criminal offense, they often go to great lengths to determine whether to allow that professional to keep practicing in the state.

Medical licensing review boards are not criminal courts - they have broad authority to suspend or revoke a professional license for a variety of reasons. While criminal prosecutors must prove a defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, medical review panels can prevent a physician or dentist from practicing medicine for much lesser reasons.

Because of this broad authority, medical professionals can lose Utah licenses over mere criminal accusations. At Greg Smith & Associates, we know how important it is to present a thorough defense before license review boards - we have successfully helped numerous medical professionals in a wide variety of cases.

Defending Against Prescription Drug Crimes

The combination of patient demands, medical rules and criminal laws often put physicians and other professionals in difficult dilemmas. When patients insist that they need controlled substances like OxyContin and similar painkillers, doctors can unexpectedly find themselves facing criminal charges. For example, the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing often pursues cases against doctors for improperly providing painkiller prescriptions to friends and family members.

With law enforcement authorities devoting more attention to prescription medications, doctors are increasingly coming under scrutiny when controlled substances go missing. Regardless of whether a nurse or patient stole or consumed the missing drugs, Utah licensing authorities are not bound to the same standards as criminal courts - review boards can aggressively suspend or revoke physicians’ licenses based on a mere suspicion that a drug crime occurred.

Do not navigate the professional licensing defense process alone.

Review Boards Aggressively Investigate Cases Against Medical Professionals

Medical licensing review boards care about one thing: the appearance of careful scrutiny of Utah physicians. Any kind of criminal arrest or allegation can lead to an inquiry by the Utah Division of Occupational & Professional Licensing, including:

Physicians can expect to face tough questions and well-researched accusations in these cases - an effective defense lawyer can make all the difference.
