Pursuant to the provisions in Miss. Code Ann. §§73-9-13, 73-9-19, and 73-9-43, the Board shall establish procedures for the renewal of all licenses and permits issued by the Board and collect in advance all fees as provided for in this Regulation and as currently established by the Board. All licenses and permits issued by the Board shall be renewed on a biennial basis sixty (60) days prior to November 1. Beginning with the 2005 renewal period, dentists will be renewed for the biennial period 2005-2007 and each subsequent biennial renewal period thereafter. For the 2005 renewal period, dental hygienists and radiology permit holders will be renewed for 2005-2006, and beginning with the 2006 renewal period, these licensees and permit holders will be renewed for the biennial period 2006-2008 and each subsequent biennial renewal period thereafter. A two-month penalty phase shall be effective November 1 for licenses and permits not renewed on or before October 31, and any licenses and permits not renewed on or before December 31 shall be voided on January 1 for a failure to renew.
The payment of the renewal fee by any dentist or dental hygienist who receives a Mississippi license by credentials, or by any dental assistant who receives a Mississippi radiology permit, within the ninety-day (90-day) period prior to September 1, shall satisfy the renewal fee requirements for the renewal period during which licensure or permit status was granted and for the upcoming renewal period beginning September 1 of that current year. The payment of the renewal fee for impaired licensees is mandatory for all currently licensed dentists and dental hygienists.
