Part V
Licensure Renewal and Reinstatement

A. Prior to 2022, an active or inactive dental hygiene license shall be renewed on or before March 31 each year. Beginning in January 2022, an active or inactive dental hygiene license shall be renewed in the licensee's birth month each year.

B. A faculty license, a restricted volunteer license, or a temporary permit shall be renewed on or before June 30 each year.

C. The license of any person who does not return the completed renewal form and fees by the deadline required in subsection A of this section shall automatically expire and become invalid and his practice of dental hygiene shall be illegal. With the exception of practice with a current, restricted volunteer license as provided in § 54.1-2726.1 of the Code, practicing in Virginia with an expired license may subject the licensee to disciplinary action by the board.

D. Any person who does not return the completed form and fee by the deadline required in subsection A of this section shall be required to pay an additional late fee. The board may renew a license if the renewal form, renewal fee, and late fee are received within one year of the deadline required in subsection A of this section.
