Chapter 150-12 FEES
|(1)|| The required
fee must accompany the appropriate application as noted in the follow schedule.
All fees are considered paid only when received in the Office of the Department
of Community Health, payable to the Georgia Board of Dentistry:
|(1)||It is the policy of the Board of Dentistry to pursue its legal remedies under O.C.G.A. § 16-9-20 when a bad check is issued in payment of examination, license or renewal fees, application fees, or similar fees, and to take such other action as is outlined in 150-12 and regulations. Any person issuing a bad check will be subject to the service charge as provided in O.C.G.A. § 16-9-20(a)(2).|
|(2)||If an applicant for licensure by credentials issues a bad check to cover required licensure fees, such applicant shall not be issued a license until the applicant has paid the appropriate fees and the service charge. If a license is issued prior to determining that the applicant issued a bad check, such license will be deemed to have been issued in error and deemed not current unless the applicant pays the licensure fees and service charge within ten (10) days after the applicant has received a notice mailed by certified or registered mail. The applicant must pay the licensure fees and the service charge by cashier's check or money order.|
|(3)||If a licensee attempts to renew a license by the issuance of a bad check, the license will not be renewed until the licensee pays all fees due including any applicable late renewal fees plus the service charge. If the license is renewed and reissued to the licensee prior to determination that the licensee issued a bad check, the licensee will be notified by certified or registered mail that the renewed license will be deemed not current unless the licensee remits all fees due for renewal plus the service charge within ten (10) days after receipt of notice. The licensee must pay the fees and service charge by cashier's check or money order.|
