Education Law Section 6605
1.On recommendation of the board, the department may issue a limited permit to a graduate of a dental college who meets the educational qualifications for admission to the licensing examination in dentistry for employment in a hospital or dental facility approved by an appropriate agency, while under the direction or supervision of a licensed dentist. No such permit shall be issued or renewed unless such graduate has a bona fide offer of a position in such a hospital or dental facility.
2.On recommendation of the board, the department may issue a limited permit for instructing in dentistry to a dentist not licensed under this article to be employed by a registered school of dentistry or dental hygiene to instruct and supervise clinical dentistry or dental hygiene for students in such a registered school in the state, and in so doing to practice dentistry as defined in this article, but only on the premises of such registered school or such other premises as may be used for instruction in the program of education conducted by such institution. No person shall be permitted or authorized to instruct and supervise clinical dentistry for students unless such person is licensed in this state or holds the foregoing limited permit for instructing in dentistry.
3.The holder of a limited permit under this section may practice dentistry, as defined in this article, but only in the performance of duties required by the position for which the limited permit is issued. Nothing in this section shall be construed to authorize such unlicensed dentist to engage in the private practice of dentistry.
4.A limited permit under this section shall be valid for one year or until ten days after notification of denial of an application for license. A limited permit may be renewed for one year, except if the applicant is serving in a residency program in a hospital or school of dentistry in this state. A limited permit may be renewed annually for the duration of such residency program. The fee for each limited permit and for each renewal shall be one hundred five dollars.
5.Notwithstanding subdivision one of this section, dental school graduates who meet the license requirement for education pursuant to subdivision two of § 6604 (Requirements for a license as a dentist)section sixty-six hundred four of this article shall be deemed to be exempt persons pursuant to § 6610 (Exempt persons)section sixty-six hundred ten of this article and shall not be required to obtain a limited permit, provided that they are employed in an approved residency program for the purpose of fulfilling initial licensure requirements pursuant to § 6604 (Requirements for a license as a dentist)section sixty-six hundred four of this article. Not later than sixty days after entry into an approved residency program, the dental resident shall register on a form acceptable to the commissioner and pay to the department a residency registration fee established by the department, which residency registration fee shall be reasonable and shall not exceed the limited permit fee specified in subdivision four of this section. All persons deemed exempt pursuant to this section shall be subject to all provisions of article 130 (Arthur O Eve Opportunity For Higher Education)article one hundred thirty of this title, including but not limited to having disciplinary action taken against their residency registration status.
