Dental Quality Assurance Commission
The Dental Quality Assurance Commission (DQAC) is empowered by the Legislature to license, regulate and discipline dentists, dental assistants and expanded function dental auxiliaries. It does not govern dental hygienists, except for rules authorizing delegation of functions by a dentist to a hygienist.
