Caution

As a result of a complaint, the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee decided to caution Dr. Ronald Joseph McClure as follows:

• As a dentist and a member of the profession, your priority is to serve the dental needs of your patients. Although you may be met with obstacles in either your personal life or professional career, it is your obligation to ensure that your patients’ needs are not neglected.

• The panel is disappointed that you are the subject of another complaint before the ICR Committee in which there are serious concerns with your clinical skills and recordkeeping practices. In this case, the panel observed concerns leading back to years of treatment, and is disappointed to conclude that you have failed to meet the standards expected of the profession.

• Any person reviewing the clinical records should know, in detail, what treatment and patient discussions had occurred. Your records fell far below the standard expected of a professional. The lack of detail and omissions in your records are seriously concerning.

• You should reflect on the seriousness of the panel’s concerns. You should diligently and consistently incorporate the lessons learned from the courses ordered by the Discipline and ICR Committees such that your practice will be remediated.
