* § 404-r. Distinctive plates for New York state licensed dentists who
are members of the New York State Dental Association. 1. Any New York
state licensed dentist residing in this state who is a member of the New
York State Dental Association as established pursuant to chapter six
hundred eighty-three of the laws of nineteen hundred ninety-seven shall,
upon request, be issued a license plate formatted at the discretion of
the department bearing the letters "DDS" or "DMD" and the official logo
of the New York State Dental Association. Such license plate need not
contain the statue of liberty logo. If a distinctive plate is issued to
a New York state licensed dentist pursuant to this section, such
distinctive plate shall not be issued to the spouse of such member.
Application for said license shall be filed with the commissioner in
such form and detail as the commissioner shall prescribe, and shall be
verified annually by the applicant.

2. The distinctive plate authorized in subdivision one of this section
shall be issued upon proof, satisfactory to the commissioner, that the
applicant is presently a dentist licensed to practice in the state of
New York and a member of the New York State Dental Association.

3. A distinctive plate issued pursuant to this section shall be issued
in the same manner as other number plates upon payment of the regular
registration fee prescribed by section four hundred one of this article
and an additional annual service charge of thirty dollars. Twenty
dollars from each thirty dollars received as annual service charges
under this section shall be deposited to a fund for the credit of the
Percy T. Phillips Educational Foundation of The Dental Society of the
State of New York, said fund established as a revolving fund pursuant to
section ninety-seven-www of the state finance law; provided, however,
that one year after the effective date of this section, funds in the
amount of five thousand dollars, or so much thereof as may be available
shall be allocated from such fund to the department to offset costs
associated with the production of such license plates.
