A: GOOD QUESTION
If dismissed, a copy of the Dismissal will ordinarily be in the official court file. In Charlotte, defense lawyers may call that the "shuck."
Indeed, the dismissal itself is often written on the front of the citation by the prosecuting attorney (the Assistant District Attorney), assuming it's a simple traffic ticket and not something more.
Furthermore, the official court system computer database (we refer to it as the ACIS system) also will indicate a dismissal of charges.
That computer portal is NOT available to the general public.

A: First, my heart goes out to you. I can only imagine how difficult it must be to live with your loss.
That being said, I think it would be better to speak with an attorney before posting something on a public forum and possibly subjecting yourself to civil claims for libel.
Indeed, if the purpose is to protect others from the opioid epidemic and possibly the doctor herself or himself, there may be more effective private ways to proceed forward through the NC Medical Board.
Given the sensitive nature of the subject and further considering Mt. Airy is still "small town NC," it might be better to speak with an attorney with the protection of confidentiality and attorney-client privilege.
Again, deepest condolences in your loss.
A: GOOD QUESTION
While clearly disconcerting, there may be legal options available.
I think the smart thing to do is to retain legal counsel immediately.
Butch Jenkins is an excellent attorney and super nice guy:
Here's some more information about Insurance Points vs NC DMV points:
District Attorney's offices in NC often have preferred protocols on how to handle tickets. Legal counsel may want to consolidate the cases to negotiate a plea.
Obviously, some of the important considerations/goals would be:
1. Save the license
2. Save insurance premiums
