IL license defense lawyerThere are many types of professions that are regulated in Illinois, such as cosmetology, psychology, financial services, and even architecture. One regulated profession that does not come as much of a surprise is dentistry. The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) oversees the licensing, continuing education, practice, and discipline of dentists and related professions in the state. Becoming a dentist takes years of hard work and study, but getting your dental license requires you to know all of the requirements before you apply for your Illinois dental license.

General Dentistry Licenses

Like many other health-related professions in Illinois and throughout the country, you must have a license to practice dentistry in Illinois. To obtain a license to practice general dentistry, you must:

  • Be at least 21 years old
  • Be of “good moral character”
  • Provide evidence that you graduated from a dentistry school accredited by the American Dental Association
  • Present evidence that you passed both parts of the National Board Dental Examination
  • Pass an examination conducted by one of the five regional testing services: the Central Regional Dental Testing Service, Inc. (CRDTS); the Southern Regional Testing Agency, Inc. (SRTA); the Western Regional Examining Board (WREB); the North East Regional Board (NERB) or the Council of Interstate Testing Agencies (CITA)

Anesthesia Permits

In many cases, a dentist or dental specialist such as an orthodontist or oral surgeon will want to be able to administer anesthesia in their office. Legally, they cannot do that without first applying for and receiving the proper anesthesia permits. Illinois ranks its dental anesthesia permits at varying levels. A dentist with a general practicing license can use minimal sedation, where consciousness is only slightly affected. However, any further forms of sedation, such as moderate sedation, deep sedation, and general anesthesia require further education, experience, training, and other requirements.

Once this feat has been completed, you are ready to start out on your professional journey to make a difference in someone else’s life. Whether performing a common tooth cleaning session, extracting an infected tooth, or treating a major gum disease, you now have the knowledge to help others with their dental needs. However, do you know what will happen if your dentistry license expires or is suspended, and you need to reinstate it? Is reinstating your dentist’s license even possible?

Restoring Your Dentist’s License

There are many reasons why a person’s dentistry license may be suspended, expired, or revoked. A dentist may have made a mistake when performing a routine tooth cleansing, therefore causing further complications for the patient. Or the dentist has somehow forgotten to renew his or her license. Whatever the case may be, there is still a possibility that the dentist may be able to restore the dentistry license. Depending on how long the license has expired or has been revoked or suspended, there are different rules that must be followed.
