Washington. It shall terminate whenever the holder ceases to be such a
full-time faculty member. Such license shall permit the holder thereof to
practice dentistry only in connection with his or her duties in employment with
the school of dentistry of the University of Washington. This limitation shall
be stated on the license.

The license shall permit the resident dentist to provide dental care only in connection with his or her duties as a university resident.
The board may condition the granting of ((
such)) a license under
this section with terms the board deems appropriate. All persons licensed
under this section shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the dental
disciplinary board to the same extent as other members of the dental
profession, in accordance with this chapter, and in addition the licensee may
be disciplined by the dental disciplinary board after a hearing has been held
in accordance with the provisions set forth in this chapter, and determination
by the dental disciplinary board that such licensee has violated any of the
restrictions set forth in this section.
(4) Persons applying for licensure pursuant to this section shall pay
the application fee determined by the secretary and, in the event the license
applied for is issued, a license fee at the rate provided for licenses
generally. After review by the board of dental examiners, licenses issued

education, and otherwise meets the requirements of the provisions and
conditions deemed appropriate by the board of dental examiners. Any person who
