The law requires that licensees provide the Board with a current primary mailing address and that dentists provide the address of each practice location. Licensees must inform the Board, in writing, within 10 days of a change to either the primary mailing address or any practice location.
Licensees are also required to report to the Board, in writing, if they are charged with or arrested for any conduct that could affect their ability to practice or the safety of their patients.
Dentists are required to report any adverse occurrence that takes place within their office, which results in a patient’s death; temporary or permanent physical or mental injury or the need for emergency medical intervention.
Dentists are required to report any theft or loss of controlled substances to the Board of Dental Examiners, the Drug Enforcement Agency and local law enforcement.
