Under normal circumstances, reinstating a lapsed or expired healthcare professional license in Wisconsin can be a challenging process, with requirements often including renewal fees and late fees, and the demonstration of up-to-date education and recent work history in a position that requires the license in question.

Being arrested for operating while intoxicated is scary. The first thing most people worry about is how the arrest and subsequent conviction will affect their driver’s license and their ability to drive. They hire an attorney who is experienced with OWI cases. But, if you are a healthcare professional in Wisconsin, you also need an attorney who is experienced with professional licensing defense.

Wisconsin strictly enforces the requirements set forth by law for dentist license applications. Applicants must pass the board exam and show proof of graduation from an accredited dental school. In addition, applicants must disclose certain criminal convictions if they have them. Under Wisconsin law, an applicant must report a conviction of any felony, misdemeanor, or other offense for which the circumstances substantially relate to the practice of dentistry.
