CONCORD — A Hudson dentist's ability to prescribe drugs was suspended Friday pending a hearing into accusations he provided excessive prescriptions for narcotics, Attorney General Michael Delaney said in a release.
Dr. Robert T. Christ is scheduled to appear April 8 for a state Board of Dental Examiners hearing "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," the release said.
Christ is accused of prescribing narcotics to people without a medical reason to do so and that the frequency, quantity and dosage of drugs were excessive.
