For Immediate Release
March 22, 2013
Matthew G. Mavrogeorge, Assistant Attorney General
Attorney General Michael A. Delaney announces that the New Hampshire Board of Dental Examiners ("Board") has suspended the privilege of Robert T. Christ, DMD to prescribe controlled substances in the State of New Hampshire effective March 22, 2013. Dr. Christ currently practices dentistry in Hudson, New Hampshire.
The Board's action is in response to information obtained by the Board indicating that Dr. Christ had been prescribing controlled substances to some individuals without a medical basis to do so and that the frequency, quantity and dosage of the controlled substances being prescribed by Dr. Christ for certain individuals were excessive for what had been documented.
On March 22, 2013, the Board issued an Order of Emergency Suspension of Prescribing Privileges and Notice of Hearing. The order suspended Dr. Christ's privilege to prescribe controlled substances immediately. A Board hearing is currently scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on April 8, 2013, for the purpose of determining whether Dr. Christ engaged in professional misconduct, which warrants the continuation of the suspension of his privilege to prescribe controlled substances, the imposition of permanent disciplinary sanctions, or both.
