Special requests for approval of the practice of dentistry in an area in which the ratio does not meet the definition of an area of need shall be considered by the Board of Health on an individual basis. To obtain the board's approval, the scholarship or loan repayment recipient shall substantiate to the board's satisfaction that the ratio does not correctly depict the provision of dental services in the city or county and that additional practitioners are necessary. Examples of situations deserving special consideration may include topography, age or physical health of dental practitioners in the area, and sub-areas of high density population that can be geographically identified and shown to have a ratio less than the state ratio.
