Too often the remediation and reinstatement process employed by dental boards adversely affects all the parties involved, including the consumer, the licensee, and the board itself. Although unintentional, the current time consuming processes engaged in by boards can adversely affect the consumer in that until the problem is corrected, the licensee will continue to provide substandard care to consumers. Board regulators are then criticized for not acting in an efficient and effective manner. The Board should find a way to implement an immediate plan of action for a more efficient remediation strategy where reasonable. This is in the best interests of not only the consumer, but also the licensee AND the Board. The public is protected in a more timely fashion, and instead of focusing on investigations and mounting legal fees, the licensee can immediately address skills issues through OHE without interruption to the daily office routine.
