 Indian-American Dentist Should Not Have Performed Multiple Procedures at Same Sitting

An expert witness has told the State Dental Commission, investigating an Indian origin dentist, that he should not have had attempted so many procedures at a single sitting.

Dr Rashmi Patel faces the possibility of his license being revoked by the State Dental Commission after Judith Gan, 64, lost her life when he attempted to remove 20 of her teeth in a single sitting.

Dr Patel's license has been suspended after Gan's death and the Commission was told on the first day of its investigation that he had ignored pleas from his assistants to stop working and to provide emergency medication to Gan.

The Commission also heard that another patient, a 55-year-old man, almost choked to death on a throat pack back in December while there were allegations that he had allowed at least five medications to expire. Meanwhile Dr Patel spoke to the media, expressing his sympathies to Gan's family and said, "I feel awful about what Michael Gan and his family are feeling at this point, hearing what happened in the media. I really want to give my deepest sympathies to them."
