Volunteer's License -- Qualifications -- Permissible practice -- Immunity from liability
(1) Upon application and qualification, the board may issue, without examination, a volunteer's license to a dentist or dental hygienist who is retired from the active practice of dentistry or dental hygiene to enable the retired dentist or dental hygienist to provide dental or dental hygiene services at specified locations to persons who, due to age, infirmity, indigence or disability, are unable to receive regular dental treatment. (2) For purposes of this section, a dentist or dental hygienist previously holding a dental or dental hygiene license with active status in Idaho or another state shall be considered to be retired if, prior to the date of application for a volunteer's license, he has surrendered or allowed his license with active status to expire with the intention of ceasing to actively practice as a dentist or dental hygienist for remuneration, he has converted his license with active status to a license with inactive status with the intention of ceasing to actively practice as a dentist or dental hygienist for remuneration, or he has converted his license with active or inactive status to a license with retirement or similar status that proscribed the active practice of dentistry or dental hygiene. A dentist or dental hygienist whose dental or dental hygiene license had been restricted, suspended, revoked, surrendered, resigned, converted, or allowed to lapse or expire as the result of disciplinary action or in lieu of disciplinary action being taken shall not be eligible for a volunteer's license.
