DQAC to Discuss Hygienist Scope Expansion

On Friday, August 14th at 1:00 p.m., the Dental Quality Assurance Commission's (DQAC) Dental Collaboration Committee will convene via conference call to discuss potential rule making changes related to delegation of duties for dental hygienists. Dentists are encouraged to participate on the call and provide the committee with any comments or concerns they may have. To RSVP for the conference call, please contact DQAC Program Manager, Jennifer Santiago at jennifer.santiago@doh.wa.gov or by phone at 360-236-4893.

The Collaboration Committee is made up of members of DQAC, the Dental Hygiene Examining Committee, and the Board of Denturists. At their July 17th meeting, DQAC agreed to open rule making for delegation of duties for dental hygienists based on the proposals put forth by the Collaboration Committee.
