YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

A York dentist who allegedly failed to properly disinfect and sterilize devices could have her license returned.

The Pennsylvania State Board of Dentistry decided Friday to stay the suspension of Dr. Jacqueline A. Marcin and place her on five years of probation if she completes professional education courses in infection control policies, does not practice until she has done so, and pays for the costs of the investigation.

Marcin's dental license was temporarily suspended on April 29, and this week the Pennsylvania Department of Health warned that her patients might be at risk for infection because Marcin did not follow appropriate cleaning procedures at her office at 1820 E. Market Street.

The Health Department recommended hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV testing for current or former patients who had dental procedures performed directly by Marcin, such as fillings, tooth removals, denture fittings and other procedures.

Testing was not advised for patients who received routine cleanings or checkups performed by other staff members.

Officials said there have been no reports of disease transmission or illness.
