A Keene-based pediatric dentist who was previously sanctioned for practicing while impaired faces new allegations of professional misconduct, including claims that he overused restraints and nitrous oxide, performed unnecessary dental work and did not fully obtain informed consent for some procedures.
The N.H. Board of Dental Examiners leveled the new allegations against Dr. Blake C. Wullbrandt in a notice dated Tuesday.
Wullbrandt is scheduled to appear before the board Nov. 8 for a hearing on the allegations and, if proven, whether they warrant disciplinary action. State law authorizes the board to suspend or revoke a dentist’s license, or impose other sanctions, if it finds evidence of misconduct.
Wullbrandt’s practice is Children’s Dental Care on Railroad Street. Reached by phone Friday, he declined to comment on the dental board’s latest allegations. He did not answer when asked if he has been actively practicing.
The Board of Dental Examiners, which regulates dentistry in New Hampshire, issued Wullbrandt a license to practice in 2001, according to an online state directory. His license was active as of Friday afternoon.
