(York) -- The state has reinstated the license of a dentist who had been accused of failing to follow appropriate procedures to clean, disinfect and sterilize devices in her York County office. 

Dr. Jacqueline Marcin's license was restored after she provided evidence of complying with terms of an agreement signed in June.

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

Her license was temporarily suspended on April 29th after failing an inspection at her office.

The move prompted the state Health Department to urge Marcin's patients to get tested for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV if they had invasive procedures like fillings and extractions.
