Halifax-Area Dentist Admits to Allowing Jail Guard to do Dental Surgery

A Halifax-area dentist has admitted to allowing an unqualified person to perform dental surgery on an inmate from a Newfoundland jail.

Louis Bourget’s admission is contained in an agreed statement of facts that formed part of a disciplinary decision by the Newfoundland and Labrador Dental Board, the body that regulates the profession in that province.

According to the statement, two guards accompanied patient Blair Harris to Bourget’s dental practice in Gander, N.L., from the Bishop’s Falls Correctional Centre on Oct. 16, 2020. Bourget has offices in Gander, northern New Brunswick and the Halifax area.
