Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 766 -- Teeth Whitening

Sponsor:  Grill

This bill requires all teeth-whitening formulations to be
prescribed and dispensed by a licensed dentist.  Application of
whitening formulations may be done by licensed dental hygienists
and registered dental assistants, but only under the direct
supervision of a licensed dentist.  Any person who takes dental
impressions or performs any part of the teeth-whitening process
without being under the direct supervision of a licensed dentist
will be deemed to be engaging in the practice of dentistry.
