18A:71C-38 Probationary period.
18A:71C-38. Each program participant shall serve a six-month probationary period upon initial placement at an approved site. During that period, the primary care staff of the approved site, or in the case of a clinic which is part of the extramural network of dental clinics established by the New Jersey Dental School of Rutgers, The State University, the director of the clinics and the vice-dean of the dental school, together with the program participant and the executive director or his designee, shall evaluate the suitability of the placement for the program participant. At the end of the probationary period, the primary care staff shall recommend the continuation of the program participant's present placement, a change in placement, or its determination that the program participant is an unsuitable candidate for the program. If the primary care staff of the approved site recommends a change in placement, the executive director or a designee shall approve an alternate placement at an approved site. If the primary care staff determines that the program participant is not a suitable candidate for the program, the executive director or his designee shall take this recommendation into consideration in regard to the program participant's final acceptance into the program. No loan redemption payment shall be made during the six-month probationary period; however, a program participant shall receive credit for the six-month period in calculating the first year of required service under the loan redemption contract.
