Proposed Rules and Regulations

10.0 Eligibility to Take the Practical (Clinical) Examination


Pursuant to Title 24, Section 1106(a)(1), The Board of Dental Examiners is empowered to formulate rules and regulations to implement or clarify Chapter 11 relating to dentistry and dental hygiene.


This regulation clarifies eligibility to take the practical (clinical) examination in dentistry and dental hygiene administered by the Board.

10.1 No person shall be eligible to take the practical (clinical) examination dentistry administered by the Delaware Board of Dental Examiners unless the applicant has received a degree in dentistry from an accredited dental college or university accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association.

10.2 No person shall be eligible to take the practical (clinical) examination in dental hygiene administered by the Delaware Board of Dental Examiners unless the applicant has graduated from a dental hygiene college or university program of at least 2 academic years’ duration or has graduated, prior to 1953, from a dental hygiene program of at least 1 year’s duration which program had been approved by the Board at the time of the person’s graduation.

10.3 The Board reserves the right to waive the requirement set forth above in sections 10.1 and 10.2 if the Applicant can establish to the satisfaction of the Board’s Credentialing Committee that he or she is a student in good standing in an educational facility accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association and will graduate within sixty (60) days of the administration of the practical (clinical) examination with a degree in dentistry or dental hygiene.

11.0 Crimes Substantially Related To The Practice Of Dentistry And Dental Hygiene.


Pursuant to 74 Del. Laws. c.262, (Senate Bill No. 229 of the 142nd General Assembly, 2004, as amended), the Board was directed to promulgate regulations specifically identifying those crimes which are substantially related to the practice of dentistry and dental hygiene.


The Board of Dental Examiners believes that the State of Delaware has a compelling public policy interest in ensuring that its licensed professionals not only have specified levels of educational and professional competence but also possess sufficient character and judgment necessary to practice safely in their chosen fields and to do so in a manner which will not undermine the community’s confidence in the expertise and professionalism of the members of the profession. Licensed professionals, particularly those in health care related fields, often come into contact with clients and patients and other members of the public at times when they may be sick, infirmed or otherwise extremely vulnerable to undue influence or other forms of misuse, fraud and abuse. It is therefore critical that all reasonable steps are taken to determine, to the extent possible, that the regulation of such professionals takes into consideration not only the individual’s technical competence but his or her demonstrated propensity to behave in a way that does not expose the client population to risk or diminish legitimate expectations of honest and honorable behavior by such licensed health care professionals. Therefore, the Board finds that for purposes of licensing, renewal, reinstatement and discipline, the conviction of any of the following crimes, or of the attempt to commit or a conspiracy to commit or conceal the following crimes or substantially similar crimes in another state or jurisdiction, is deemed to be substantially related to the practice of Dentistry and Dental Hygiene in the State of Delaware without regard to the place of conviction:
