After sealing the illegal clinics in Jammu and Samba, the J&K State Dental Council (JKSDC) today sealed the clinics run by quacks in Akhnoor, Misriwala, Roop Nagar and Bhagwati Nagar areas.
The team headed by incharge clinical registration Dr. Bhupinder Singh, comprising of inspectors Dr. Rajiv Mengi, Dr. Bhanu Kotwal and Dr. Satish Sharma conducted surprise raids and sealed 4 clinics run by quacks. Dr. Aayush Sharma and Dr. Pankaj Bhagat were also accompanying the team.
Dr. Gautam Sharma, President-elect of Indian Dental Association, Jammu, said that quacks treat patients with unsterilised instruments and may spread blood-borne diseases like HIV and Hepatitis to other patients.
Dr. Ritesh Gupta, registrar JKSDC informed that the quacks do not have autoclaves in their clinics to sterilise the instruments and use the instruments again and again without sterilising. Only qualified dental surgeons who are registered with dental council and have valid clinical registration are only authorised to treat patients.
Dr. Aayush Sharma, member JKSDC said that this sealing drive will continue till the time all the quacks who are running illegal and unauthorized clinics will be sealed.
