North Carolina legislators considering changes to dental licensing, practice regulations

North Carolina legislators are considering a bill that would make several changes to dentistry in the state, CityView reported Aug. 7.

Senate Bill 382 would expand the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners' capabilities related to licensing, clinical assessments and practice. Some of the changes include allowing dental students to use mannequins for clinical assessments and requiring applicants to submit to a physical or mental exam by healthcare providers before a license is granted. 

The bill was introduced in March.
