(A) Each person who is certified as a dental assistant radiographer shall on or before the first day of January of each odd-numbered year, register with the state dental board. The registration shall be made on a form prescribed by the board, and shall include the certificate holder's name, address, certificate number, proof of having completed at least two hours of continuing education in radiation technology from a board-approved biennial or permanent sponsor during the two-year period immediately preceding renewal, and such other reasonable information as the board may consider necessary, and shall include payment of a biennial registration fee of twenty-five dollars. This certificate shall be in effect for the two-year period beginning on the first day of January of the odd-numbered year, and ending on the last day of December of the following even-numbered year, and shall be renewed in accordance with the standard renewal procedure of sections 4745.01 to 4745.03 of the Revised Code. The failure of a certificate holder to renew his registration in accordance with this rule shall result in an automatic suspension of his certificate to practice as a dental assistant radiographer.

(B) Any dental assistant radiographer whose certificate has been suspended under this section must immediately cease taking x-rays until said certificate has been reinstated. If the certificate holder has not reinstated the certificate prior to one year from the date of automatic suspension, the certificate holder must file an application for reinstatement, and prior to reinstatement satisfactorily complete not less than two hours of continuing education approved in advance by the board. Within one year of the date of automatic suspension, the certificate holder may be reinstated by the payment of his biennial registration fee of twenty-five dollars, and in addition thereto fifteen dollars to cover costs of the reinstatement.
