HB16-1327 - Financial Responsibility For Dental Hygienists

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning The Colorado Dental Board's Authority To Promulgate Rules Implementing Financial Responsibility Requirements For Dental Care Providers.

Current law allows the board of dentistry, by rule, to establish lesser financial responsibility standards for dentists who:

  • Perform dental services as employees of the United States government;
  • Render limited, or occasional, or no dental services;
  • Perform less than full-time active dental services because of administrative or other nonclinical duties or partial or complete retirement; or
  • Provide uncompensated dental care to patients but do not otherwise provide any compensated dental care to patients.

The bill extends this rule-making authority to cover dental hygienists.
