section .0600 – reinstatement of dental hygiene license

 

21 NCAC 16C .0601          PROOF OF COMPETENCY

(a)  All applications for reinstatement shall be made on the

forms furnished by the Board at www.ncdentalboard.org and no application shall

be deemed complete that does not set forth all the information required

relative to the applicant. Incomplete applications shall be returned to the

applicant.  Any applicant who changes his or her address shall notify the Board

office within 10 business days.

(b)  The reinstatement fee shall accompany the application.

(c)  All applicants for reinstatement whose North Carolina

license has been revoked, suspended, inactive or lapsed for more than five

years must successfully pass the clinical examination given to first-time

applicants before seeking reinstatement.

(d)  Applicants for reinstatement whose North Carolina license

has been revoked, suspended, inactive or lapsed for two to five years may, at

the Board's discretion, be required to take refresher courses as specified by

the Board. Refresher courses may be required if the Board determines, based

upon the facts of the case, that the applicant may lack skills or knowledge to

practice dental hygiene competently.  Refresher courses for individuals whose

licenses have been revoked or suspended shall relate to the deficiencies that

led to the imposition of discipline.  Refresher courses for individuals whose

licenses have been inactive or lapsed shall take into account the amount of

time the license has been inactive or lapsed and the individual's level of

experience.

(e)  Applicants who are licensed in other states shall ensure

that the Board receives verification of licensure from the board of each state

in which they are licensed.

(f)  Applicants whose North Carolina license has been

revoked, suspended, inactive or lapsed for more than one year shall submit to

the Board a signed release form, completed Fingerprint Record Card, and such

other form(s) required to perform a criminal history check at the time of the

application for reinstatement.  The form and card are available from the Board

office.

(g)  Applicants shall provide proof of continuing education

in clinical patient care, by Board-approved sponsors, equal to the number of

hours currently required for the renewal of a dental hygiene license and

current CPR certification.

(h)  Two letters of character reference from non-family

members.

(i)  A report from the National Practitioner Databank.
