Dentist before conduct committee

A Brighouse dentist is this week appearing before a professional conduct committee to answer several charges.

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

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

Charges state Dr Zaman inaccurately asserted to Patient A that the general state of her teeth was a matter of serious concern and if nothing was done she would have false teeth forever; her face would sag and sink inwards as her gum shrunk back and bacteria were being unleashed into her blood stream.

He also faces claims he did not retain treatment records as required.

The Birmingham hearing resumed on Tuesday after it was adjourned in February and is expected to conclude next week.

The hearing’s findings are expected to be published following a ruling of the Practice Committee.

Dr Zaman is registered as of Central Park, Well Head, Halifax.
