2016 Legislative Session 
 

House Bill 1104 would allow more flexibility in the way dentists supervise dental hygienists working under collaborative supervision and strikes the special exemption given to Delta Dental two years ago for their pilot project on the Reservations.    

The bill adds the term “oral health review” to the Dental Practice Act defining it as a “limited assessment of a person's oral health through a dentist's review of dental and medical history following a limited clinical inspection by a dental hygienist working under collaborative supervision.”
