Conditional License: The individual may continue to practice, but must meet certain conditions within a specified time period. Conditions could include completing specific coursework, submitting reports to the Board, conducting infection control or record keeping inspections, or all of the above. Once all conditions are met, the licensee may petition the Board to have the conditions removed from the license, and upon Board approval, be issued an unconditional license.
Limited License: The individual may continue to practice but only within well-defined parameters. The Board may order a licensee from providing certain kinds of treatment. Some orders allow for the limitation to be lifted once certain conditions are met. Others are intended to remain in place permanently.
Unconditional License: The individual license is fully restored and the individual may practice without any conditions or limitations placed on their practice/license.
Suspended: The individual must cease all practice until the suspension is lifted. As with conditional and limited licenses, a suspended license may be reinstated upon Board approval once the individual has complied with the order and demonstrated fitness to practice.
Voluntary Surrender and Revocation: The license is removed through an order for voluntary surrender or revocation order. In both cases, the individual must cease practicing for an indefinite period of time and surrender their license. In order to resume practice, the licensee must meet all of the requirements for reinstatement in the disciplinary order, as well as apply for reinstatement. This action requires Board approval.

A Note about this Page
Purpose: An Agreement for Corrective Action is used (1) to resolve complaints which allege minor violation(s) of the dental practice act, and (2) when the nature of the violation(s) does not warrant disciplinary action.
The Agreement for Corrective Action:
An Agreement for Corrective Action is expected to lead to dismissal.
It is not intended for long-term monitoring or conditions (whereas a Board order may place limits or conditions for long time periods);
It is a public agreement, but it is not considered disciplinary action, and therefore, is not reported to the National Practitioner Data Bank.
Agreement for Corrective Action's are public information, but are not published on the Board's website. These documents, however, are available upon request by contacting the Board office.
If you wish to obtain copies of a corrective action, contact the Board office at (612) 617-2250 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
