Dentist faces 18 charges

A DENTIST is facing 18 charges relating to 14 patients at his Brighouse practice after allegedly making misleading, inappropriate and unprofessional comments.

Dr Muzzafar Zaman, of The Fresh Smile Clinic in High Street, was summoned to appear before a professional conduct committee by the General Dental Council to answer to the several charges.

Dr Zaman of Halifax is said to have failed to record dosages of drugs administered and failed to fill in paperwork as obliged to.

The London hearing is expected to conclude on Friday and the General Dental Council’s findings will be released following its decision.
