Dentist accused of risking infections wants license back

Posted: Updated:
YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

A York dentist accused of not properly sterilizing her equipment has requested that the state lift the suspension on her license to practice.

Dr. Jacqueline A. Marcin's license was temporarily suspended on April 29 after she failed an inspection of her office at 1820 E. Market Street in York.  The Department of Health said she did not follow appropriate procedures to clean, disinfect or sterilize devices. The further stated that she refused to notify her patients of the infection risk.

The inspection prompted the department to recommended hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV testing for current or former patients who had dental procedures performed directly by Dr. Marcin.

Marcin's patients have complained that she has not promised to reimburse them for these tests. The board said they have no authority to require her to do so.

To get her license back, the board required Marcin had to attend classes on proper instrument care, hire a consultant to deal with improving the issue and permit unannounced checks of her office.

The State Board of Dentistry will meet on July 19. Marcin's request is on their agenda.
