Den­tist struck off by coun­cil

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Zoe Drewett zoe.drewett@trin­i­tymir­

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.
