Here are our primary legislative objectives this year:
- DEFINE INTERIM THERAPEUTIC RESTORTATIONS – establishes that in AZ, ITRs are allowed for both permanent and primary dentition.
- REMOVE UNNECESSARY RESTRICTIONS ON AFFILIATED PRACTICE HYGIENISTS – remove limit on # of APDHs who can provide services at any one time; remove provision that APDH must consult with AP dentist before treating patients who have not been seen by a dentist within 12 months of initial treatment by APDH.
- CLARIFY CONDITIONS FOR ROOT PLANING AND LOCAL ANESTHESIA BY APDH –protocols for root planing and local anesthesia must be included in affiliated practice agreement.
- SECURE DENTAL BENEFIT FOR PREGNANT WOMEN ON AHCCCS - Ensuring mothers-to-be have access to dental services under AHCCCS (Arizona’s Medicaid Program).
