Charges: Dr Muzzafar Zaman

A BRIGHOUSE dentist is appearing before a professional conduct committee to answer several charges.

Dr Muzzafar Zaman, of The Fresh Smile Clinic, High Street, was summoned to appear by the General Dental Council.

Allegations involving 14 patients were put before the London hearing which is expected to conclude on Friday.

Against Patient A, relating to May 2009, it is said his advice was misleading, inappropriate and unprofessional.

The charge says he inaccurately made a series of assertions which included: The general state of her teeth was a matter of serious concern; if he didn’t do anything sghe would have false teeth forever; her face would sag and sink inwards; and bacteria were being unleashed into her blood stream.

Dr Zaman is also facing a series of claims he did not retain treatment records as required.

On his website Dr Zaman says he focuses on reassuring patients every step of the way while being treated.

The hearing’s findings are expected to be published following the decision of the committee.
