Disclaimer for Disciplinary Action Summary
The reports contained as part of this web site represent summaries of those formal disciplinary orders issued by the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) and its participating programs, boards, committees, and commissions, imposing suspension, revocation or other discipline. Disciplinary proceedings which are resolved by dismissal of the accusation or otherwise result in no actual discipline of a license are not reported at this web site. The lack of a summary for a particular licensed person does not mean that the licensee has never been the subject of an accusation or administrative discipline.
Summary information on recent orders is prepared approximately ninety (90) days after the final decision date of a disciplinary case. Therefore, although this web site may presently lack any such report, some licensees will actually be named in accusations, or be subject to disciplinary orders.
The brief summaries offered at this web site are not intended as substitutes for the actual decisions and orders issued by the Department of Consumer Affairs. Copies of those decisions and orders are available at no cost by writing to the designated address for each program or board.
Also, the actions reported here may not be final and may not reflect any judicial action to stay or modify the administrative order. You should not take any action based on information contained in these summaries without verifying the information and determining whether the administrative order has been stayed or modified by a court.
As used in this summary, the term "accusation" is a formal document that notifies a licensee of the agency's charges against the licensee, and that requests a disciplinary order. The licensee is entitled to contest the charges in a formal hearing before an administrative law judge. An accusation is usually resolved by an agency decision following such a hearing or by an agency decision pursuant to a settlement agreement. Often there is a considerable period of time between the date of filing an accusation and the resolution of the accusation.
The term "suspended" means that the licensee's right to practice has been suspended for a period of time, usually for a specified number of days or months. A suspended licensee may not practice during the period of suspension. A suspension will usually be imposed in conjunction with a lengthy period of probation of two or more years.
The term "revoked" means that the licensee's right to practice has been completely taken away. Revocation is not necessarily permanent, however. A person whose license is revoked has the right, one year or more after the revocation, to apply for reinstatement. Some applications are successful. The applicant for reinstatement must, however, demonstrate to the DENTAL BOARD OF CALIFORNIA that the applicant is rehabilitated and is fit to resume practice.
