Well, this is not exactly what Dr. Shelburne agreed to in writing (consent order) when he surrendered his dental license. He agreed to never contest the findings of fact.
I will let the reader pass judgment on Dr. Shelburne but I cannot help but think this little exercise and the one here are nothing but jury pool spin. His son now owns his former dental practice and Dr. Shelburne senior faces a federal civil trial which might cost him all of the proceeds of such a sale/transfer – and the remainder of his assets.
Also, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that Dr. Shelburne will apply to have his dental license reinstated.
Of course, dentists must document their records but the egregious nature of the abuse here is far and way beyond anything I have ever seen or reviewed.
