Vol. 39 Iss. 16 - March 27, 2023



Agency Decision

Title of Regulation: 18VAC60-21. Regulations Governing the Practice of Dentistry.

Statutory Authority: § 54.1-2400 of the Code of Virginia.

Name of Petitioner: Suzanne Williams.

Nature of Petitioner's Request: The petitioner requests that the Board of Dentistry amend 18VAC60-21-250 C 8 to include Pacific Medical Training as an approved continuing education sponsor for the topics required in 18VAC60-21-250 B.

Agency Decision: Request denied.

Statement of Reason for Decision: The board considered the petition at its March 3, 2023, meeting and decided to take no action. On October 14, 2022, the board's regulatory committee recommended deleting the listed providers from 18VAC60-21-250 C 8 as part of the amendments following the periodic review of 18VAC60-21. The committee further recommended that the approved entities be added to a guidance document once the regulatory action is approved to allow for greater flexibility in adding approved entities. The board adopted the regulatory committee's recommendation on December 2, 2022, and the action has been submitted to the Office of the Attorney General for review. The action will be viewable by the public when it moves to the Department of Planning and Budget for review. The board will consider adding this entity to the approved providers once the list of providers can be moved to a guidance document.
