IL license defense attorneyEach year, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) issues, renews and reinstates hundreds of licenses to those in the dental field. To be eligible for a general Illinois dental license, you must complete years of schooling, have years of clinical training, and pass both a national and regional dentistry test. After putting so much effort into getting your license to practice dentistry, the last thing you would want to do is jeopardize your license by committing a simple violation. Depending on the violation, you could face disciplinary or non-disciplinary action and fines of up to $10,000 per offense.

Common Violations That Could Affect Your License

To practice dentistry in Illinois, you are required to have a valid Illinois dental license. The IDFPR is the licensing entity that determines whether or not you can practice dentistry. There are a number of violations that could cause the IDFPR to refuse, revoke or suspend your license to practice dentistry. These violations include:

  • Misrepresentation on your application for a license or renewal
  • Inability to safely practice because of excessive use of or addiction to alcohol or other drugs
  • Employing or aiding or abetting a person who is not licensed to be a dentist or dental hygienist to practice dentistry or dental hygiene
  • Making false promises or misrepresentations to potential patients in order to get their patronage
  • Performing Medicaid fraud
  • Practicing under a false name
  • Employing more than four dental hygienists under his or her supervision at a time
  • Failing to report a suspected incident of child abuse or neglect
  • Prescribing narcotics for uses other than therapeutic uses
  • Professional incompetence
  • Physical or mental illness that prevents a person from practicing dentistry with reasonable skill, safety, and judgment
  • Immoral conduct
  • Cheating on the licensing exam
  • Failing to maintain patient care and treatment records
