In fact, it’s one of your biggest responsibilities in your marriage. Where are some common places where you might run into this scenario? You could be starting a new job and find yourself around a lot of nice, new women.When this happens, you have to make the choice to embrace their attention or extinguish it in a friendly way by mentioning your beautiful wife and family.
Gemma Hobcraft, for the General Dental Council, said: ‘This was a fundamental line that was crossed and therefore a serious departure from the standards expected.’A GDC committee will decide whether Pym’s fitness to practise is impaired by reason of his misconduct and what, if any, sanction to impose.
The tribunal heard that Pym continued with the relationship after finding out she was a patient of his and being advised to desist.
The panel was asked to consider ‘what the position would be if a patient were to be forward with him and overt with him’ in those circumstances.‘In my submission the committee should give considerable pause for concern as to whether you are satisfied that Mr Pym will not let personal gratification trump professional obligation again,’ Ms Hobcraft said.
Mr Kennedy conceded on Pym’s behalf that the initial contact was inappropriate.
A married dentist who had affair with a woman he met on a dating website claims he had no idea she was one of his patients, a tribunal heard.
A tribunal heard that Richard Pym, who practised at the Church Lane Dental Practice, in Harpurhey, Manchester, met the woman online in March 2015.The pair exchanged texts and Whats App messages before he realised he had treated her in his dentist’s chair.But Pym carried on with the exchanges and struck up a sexual relationship while continuing to treat her, the General Dental Council heard.If needed, again, always be ready to bring up something about your wife or family. I believe I did, but this last point brings the idea to a firm home.The single women you engage with each day, if you have to, should be no match to your wife and family.Operating heavy machinery, swimming in shark infested waters, etc. Seriously, get out of that situation, your vows, marriage, children and more depend on those important decisions.
