Calif. Dental Board Takes Three Years To Resolve a Case
The Dental Board of California typically takes more than three years to review and close a case, double the board's goal of resolving disciplinary cases within a year-and-a-half. The board, which has 26 investigators, issues 15 dentistry-related licenses, and permits and oversees about 86,00 dental professionals, as well as 50,000 unlicensed dental assistants.
