(a) Except as provided by subsection (b), no action to revoke or suspend a license shall be taken until the licensee has been furnished a statement in writing of the charges against the licensee, together with a notice of the time and place of the hearing. The statement of charges and notice shall be served upon the licensee in accordance with the provisions of the Kansas administrative procedure act.

(b) If the board determines that there is probable cause to revoke or suspend the license of a dentist or dental hygienist for any reason that exists pursuant to K.S.A. 65-1436, and amendments thereto, and if the licensee's continued practice would constitute an imminent danger to public health and safety, the board may initiate administrative proceedings for an emergency adjudication under the provisions of the Kansas administrative procedure act.

In no case shall a temporary suspension or temporary limitation of a license under this section be in effect for more than 90 days. At the end of such period of time, the licensee shall be reinstated to full licensure unless the board has revoked or suspended the license of the licensee after notice and hearing, provided in accordance with the provisions of the Kansas administrative procedure act.
