|(a) An equine dental provider's license expires on
March 1 of each calendar year and is considered delinquent. On or
before March 1, a licensee must renew an unexpired license, in writing,
by paying the required fee and furnishing all information required
by the Board for renewal.
(b) An equine dental provider licensee who has failed
to renew his or her license for a period of one year or more and wishes
to reinstate the license may be required to appear before the Board
to explain why the licensee allowed the license to expire and the
licensee's reasons for wanting it reinstated. The licensee must take
and pass the EDPE and comply with §571.3 of this title (relating
to Criminal History Evaluation Letters).
(c) An equine dental provider licensee who is the spouse
of a person serving on active duty as a member of the armed forces
of the United States who held an equine dental provider license in
Texas within the past five years, and has failed to renew his or her
license for a period of one year or more while the licensee was living
in another state for at least six months, may reinstate his or her
license without appearing before the Board. The licensee must still
take and pass the EDPE and complying with §571.3 of this title.
