Qualifications for restricted or temporary licenses
Action 4504
General Information
Action Summary Amendments to Chapter 21, Regulations Governing the Practice of Dentistry were adopted for consistency with current law and with regulations in Chapter 20, which was repealed effective December 2, 2015. As a result of amendments to Chapter 27 of the Code of Virginia in 2012, changes in the qualifications for faculty licenses and temporary licenses for persons enrolled in advanced dental education programs were adopted as an exempt action. In the promulgation of the new chapter, 18VAC60-21-10 et seq., those changes were not transferred. While the provisions of the Code take precedence over the rules relating to qualifications for a faculty or temporary license, the current regulations need to be amended for consistency with the law.
