Public Statement in Relation to Mr Kamal Haddad
28 Jan 2020
The NSW Health Care Complaints Commission conducted an investigation into the professional conduct of Mr Kamal Haddad. The Commission found that Mr Haddad provided dental services to at least one patient at his residence. Mr Haddad is not currently a registered dental practitioner and has never been registered in Australia.
The investigation found that Mr Haddad breached the Code of Conduct for Unregistered Health Practitioners under Schedule 3 of the Public Health Regulation 2012 in the following respects:
- Failed to provide a health service in a safe and ethical manner
- Provided a health service he is not qualified to provide
- Provided a health service outside his experience and training
- Failed to maintain competence in his field of practice
- Engaged in misinformation and misrepresentation in relation to services he provided
- Failed to provide services and treatment that are designed to maintain or improve Patient A’s health or wellbeing
The Commission is satisfied that Mr Haddad poses a risk to the health or safety of members of the public.
The Commission therefore makes the following Prohibition Order:
Mr Kamal Haddad must not provide, offer and/or advertise any dental services, either in paid employment or voluntarily, to any member of the public unless and until he has obtained registration in the dental profession through the Dental Board of Australia.
Under section 41D of the Act, the Commission will provide a copy of this Statement of Decision to the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and each Professional Council in NSW.
The Commission has decided to make this Statement of Decision publicly available, under section 41B(3)(c) of the Act.
