Dentist – Professional misconduct. The appellant dentist appealed against the decision of the Professional Conduct Committee (the PCC) of the respondent General Dental Council (the GDC) that his fitness to practise as a dentist was impaired by misconduct and erasure was the appropriate sanction. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that the PCC had not erred in making the decision in his absence and that it had adequately discharged its obligation to test the GDC's case. Further, no error of approach was discernible from the determination on sanction.
