A Brighouse dentist under investigation by the General Dental Council has had his hearing adjourned for a second time.

Dr Muzzafar Zaman, of The Fresh Smile Clinic, High Street, faces allegations involving 14 patients.

The Birmingham hearing resumed last week after it was adjourned in February.

A GDC spokeswoman said it was adjourned again because there was insufficient time to finish the case.

“It will resume and continue on a date yet to be confirmed,” she said.

The allegations against Dr Zaman say he made misleading, inappropriate and unprofessional comments.

It is also alleged he did not retain treatment records as required.
