New Jersey Board of Dentistry Extends Deliberation on the Corporate Practice of Dentistry Rules Until November 3, 2014


On November 6, 2013, the New Jersey Board of Dentistry (the “Board”) published a notice that it received a petition for rulemaking on behalf of the New Jersey Dental Society requesting that the Board adopt  rules to establish guidance with respect to the corporate and/or unlicensed practice of dentistry in NJ.  The petition requested that the  Board adopt rules that reaffirm and clarify that non-licensees are not permitted to improperly use management companies or other devices to acquire or exercise dominion and control over licensed dentists and their practices. The Board and the petitioner subsequently agreed to two extensions of the period for Board deliberation on January 6, 2014 and on May 5, 2014.  On June 4, 2014, the Board and the petitioner agreed to a further extension until November 3, 2014.
