YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

A York dentist accused of not properly sterilizing her equipment has her license reinstated per terms of a consent order and agreement with the State Board of Dentistry.

Dr. Jacqueline A. Marcin's license was temporarily suspended on April 29 after failing an inspection at her office at 1820 E. Market Street in York. 

According to the Department of Health, Marcin had failed to follow appropriate procedures to clean, disinfect or sterilize devices. The further stated she also refused to notify her patients of the infection risk.

Patients were prompted to receive hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV testing if they had dental procedures directly by Dr. Marcin.

Marcin had to attend classes on proper instrument care, hire a consultant and permit unannounced checks of her office. 

According to the Pennsylvania Department of State, Marcin has provided evidence of complying with the terms of an agreement signed in June. Marcin will remain on probation under the terms of this agreement for a five-year period.
