The Board of Dentistry hereby gives notice:
of the issuance of an Order regarding the Petition for Waiver or Variance, filed on July 2, 2012, by Javier Lopez, Esquire, on behalf of Stephanie Gonzalez. The Notice of Petition for Waiver or Variance was published in Vol. 38, No. 29, of the July 20, 2012, Florida Administrative Weekly. Petitioner sought a waiver or variance of Rule 64B5-2.021(1), F.A.C., entitled “Additional Education Requirements for Reexamination”. The Board considered the instant Petition at a duly-noticed public meeting, held August 17, 2012, in Orlando, Florida.
The Board’s Order, filed September 5, 2012, granted the petition finding that Petitioner established that the purpose of the underlying statute, Section 466.006, Florida Statutes, would be met by granting a variance or waiver from Rule 64B5-2.021(1), F.A.C. The Board further found that Petitioner established that the Board’s full application of the aforementioned rules to her circumstances would violate principles of fairness and impose substantial hardship.
