Gov. Gavin Newsom on Oct. 8 signed into law CDA-sponsored legislation that allows California-licensed dentists to apply for the requisite laboratory licensure to administer rapid COVID-19 tests in the dental office. The new law also gives dentists permanent authority to administer FDA-approved or FDA-authorized COVID-19 and flu vaccines.
The Department of Consumer Affairs issued a new waiver that gives all California-licensed dental professionals whose active licenses expire in October 2021 until March 28, 2022, to meet license renewal requirements.
A new CDA Practice Health Check can help dental practices prepare for the American Dental Association’s CDT code changes for 2022. The ADA updates CDT codes annually, and failure to review the changes could lead to unnecessary claim denials and delays.
