SB 501 established new requirements for dentists administering or ordering the administration of general anesthesia, deep sedation, and minimal sedation. The legislation called for the new requirements to be implemented by Jan. 1, 2022. However, regulations are still being promulgated. CDA will update members on impacts to current and new permit holders as information becomes available. Review a summary of those requirements in Sedation and Anesthesia Permits.
Stay informed about the upcoming dates and deadlines.
