Changes to the Dental Practice Act Proposed

The South Dakota Board of Dentistry is in the midst of a rewrite of the South Dakota Dental Practice Act. It has been nearly 20 years since the last major update to the Practice Act. The SDDA has formed a task force to review the Board's proposed changes and to provide insight and recommendations to both the Board of Dentistry and the SDDA Board of Trustees. A draft of the Board's proposed changes can be requested from the Board at:sdboardofdentistry.com
