Technical correction
Action 5198
General Information
Action Summary A renewal fee for a mobile clinic/portable dental operation was inadvertently omitted from subsection B of section 40 when Chapter 20 was divided into four separate chapters and Chapter 21, Regulations Governing the Practice of Dentistry was promulgated in 2015. The application fee for mobile clinic/portable dental operations was included in subsection A, and the renewal fee for those entities was included in subsection H, which set out a renewal fee reduction for 2016. Subsequently, those entities were also included in the renewal fee reduction for 2018. There has been no change in the renewal fee for those entities, but there is a need to correct the error by including them on the list found in subsection B for renewals and in subsection C for late renewal fees. The renewal date for mobile clinics/portable operations was also omitted from section 240. Additionally, the application fee for temporary dental permits issued pursuant to ยง 54.1-2715 was omitted in the adoption of Chapter 21. Currently, there are no dentists who hold such a permit, but the fee needs to be included should the Board receive an application. The information added in parentheses behind certain fees provides further explanation and identification of those fees. Finally, the fee reactivation of an inactive license is reduced from the cost of renewing an active license ($285) to the difference between the renewal of an inactive license ($145) and an active license. The end result is a dentist could reactivate an inactive license with a fee of $140.
