NC dental practitioner facing 10-year license suspension

A dentist in Martin County, North Carolina is facing license suspension for 10 years after the State Board of Dental Examiners claimed that one of his patients died due to improper sedation procedure, reported on September 23.

According to reports, a patient of Doctor Zachary Harrison, identified as James Williams, died last year while under his care. Williams, 71, never woke up after sedation, the board stated. Dr. Harrison’s suspension could begin this November. He may be allowed to petition to reduce the length of his suspension after one year if found guilty. Another dentist in the same office identified as Dr. David Marshburn was also suspended by the board after having three intoxicated driving offenses within seven months.
