Dentist struck off by council
A DENTIST has been struck off by the General Dental Council after a public hearing into allegations of dishonesty.
Amraj Dhillon, of Portal Close, Uxbridge, did not turn up to his hearing with the GDC’s Professional Conduct Committee (PCC) on Tuesday, September 9.
The committee heard that in 2013, Dhillon was suspended by the PCC for a number of allegations involving dishonesty.
The latest was on July 24, 2013, during a PCC hearing. He lied under oath when he told the committee he had attended a training course called The Six Golden Standards in Dentistry, when that was not the case. The committee agreed Dhillon, a dentist at Broadway Dental Practice in Enfield, was deliberately misleading and dishonest.
In considering the case, the PCC said: “His dishonest conduct is serious and he has breached one of the fundamental tenets of the profession.
“It has borne in mind that Mr Dhillon has behaved dishonestly on three occasions, the most recent having taken place in the context of him giving evidence before the PCC in July 2013.”
Mr Dhillon was immediately suspended and unless he exercises his right of appeal, his name will be struck off the General Dental Council’s register after approximately 28 days.
