Simon Eastwood successfully defends dentist

Simon Eastwood and Anita Puri, who instructed Edward Pleeth of Serjeants’ Inn Chambers, recently represented a General Dental Practitioner before a Professional Conduct Committee of the General Dental Council. The Practitioner faced charges relating to a criminal conviction of common assault and a separate matter of criminal damage. The Committee concluded that the Dentist’s fitness to practise was not found to be currently impaired, given the extensive remediation undertaken by the Practitioner.
