SECTION 5-31.1-19


§ 5-31.1-19 Grounds for discipline without hearing.

The director may, temporarily, suspend the license of a dentist, dental hygienist, DAANCE-certified maxillofacial surgery assistant, or limited registrant without a hearing if the director finds that evidence in his or her possession indicates that a dentist, dental hygienist, DAANCE-certified maxillofacial surgery assistant, or limited registrant continuing in practice would constitute an immediate danger to the public. In the event that the director temporarily suspends the license of a dentist, dental hygienist, DAANCE-certified maxillofacial surgery assistant, or limited registrant without a hearing, a hearing by the board must be held within ten (10) days after the suspension has occurred.
