Notice of Proposed Changes Relating to Administration of Deep Sedation, General Anesthesia, Moderate Sedation, Minimal Sedation, and Local Anesthetic Agents and Nitrous Oxide Sedation in the Regulations of the Board of Dental Examiners
Written comments deadline: 5:00 p.m. on July 20, 2017
The DCCED/CBPL proposes to amend the occupational license fees relating to the Board of Dental Examiners, and to establish nitrous oxide permit application fee for dental hygienists.
The Board of Dental Examiners is staffed by the Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing. The board consists of six dentists, two dental hygienists, and one public member. Board members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Legislature.
The board adopts regulations to carry out laws governing the practice of dentistry and dental hygiene in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws. The board meets four times a year and offers a public comment period at each meeting. Meeting agendas and minutes are available from the licensing examiner and will be posted to this website once prepared.
National organizations may provide information on the regulation of the practice of dentistry in other states.
