Was the business license in place when she performed the work?
If the license was in place when the work was performed then there is no question they would have the right to try and collect on it, even if the county license is terminated.
If it wasn't then it is arguable that she wouldn't have the right to collect, but it is not by any means certain. Since a dentist has a different license, then she can make the argument that a local license may subject her to a fine, but doesn't affect her ability to do dental work and collect for that. It is completely different than a corporation which has lost its license due to failure to pay fees or taxes, since that is the only requirement of a corporation.
