NYS Senate Passes Scope of Practice Reform Again

Published on: June 16th, 2011

For the second year in a row, the New York State Senate has passed a bill to amend the dental scope of practice law to allow qualified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons to do additional procedures in the oral and maxillofacial area.  The State Assembly will now consider the bill but is unlikely to pass such during this legislative session.  NYSSOMS looks forward to further talks with Assembly leadership to help them understand the merits of this issue and move the bill forward as soon as possible.
