NAC Changes Regarding Dental Hygienists' Duties

On your behalf the efforts of NDHA have paid off! 

On June 28th the Secretary of State put a seal of approval on proposed regulation changes adopted by the Legislative Council Bureau.

A brief description of the action:
The Nevada State Board of Dental Examiners conducted a review of Nevada Administrative Codes Chapter 631.  Upon this review, discussion and public comment of the proposed/amended regulations which were noticed at a public workshop held on September 18, 2015.  On January 22,2016 a hearing for Notice of Intent to Act was held.  The Board tabled the approval/rejection of R119-15 and the Board referred the matter to the Committee on Dental Hygiene to discuss.  On March 18, 2016, the Committee on Dental Hygiene held a meeting to discuss the proposed changes to regulation NAC 631.210.  On May 20, 2016, the Board approved the proposed regulations identified as R119-15 with no changes.

Sec. 4. NAC 631.210 is hereby amended to read as follows:

1. A dentist who is licensed in this State may authorize a dental hygienist in his or her employ to perform the following acts before a patient is examined by the dentist:
(a)    Expose radiographs.
(b)    Conduct an assessment of the oral health of the patient through medical and dental histories, radiographs, indices, risk assessments and intraoral and extraoral procedures that analyze and identify the oral health needs and problems of the patient.
(c)    After conducting an assessment pursuant to paragraph (b), develop a dental hygiene care plan to address the oral health needs and problems of the patient.
 ⇒ (d) Take impressions for the preparation of diagnostic models.
  The dental hygienist must obtain authorization from the licensed dentist of the patient on whom the services authorized pursuant to this subsection are to be performed. . . . . .

New ADHA District XII Trustee!

Nevada's very own Annette Lincicome, BS, RDH, was elected as the new ADHA District XII Trustee!  While it was a competitive election with great, talented representatives from other states, Annette overcame the stiff competition and won!  District XII covers Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. 

Annette is a great leader and has served in several officer positions within SNDHA and NDHA.  And as NDHA's Membership Chair she received a special presidential citation from ADHA President Jill Rethman for her work in membership retention and growth in Nevada.  Through Annette's efforts Nevada reached 115% of its membership goal; the top state in the nation! 

Nevada has been fortunate to  have such awesome representation on the district level in our national association.  Pictured to the right are past and current District XII Trustees.  Caryn Solie, RDH (left) from Sparks, NV; Lancette VanGuilder, RDH (middle) from Sparks, NV who just finished her term as ADHA District XII Trustee; and Annette Lincicome, BS, RDH, from Las Vegas, NV.
