In November 2011, two media outlets ran stories on House Bill 1310. HB 1310 was introduced in the 2011 legislative session and would create two new practitioners: a dental therapist and an advanced dental therapist. WSDA remains opposed to HB 1310 and voiced concerns about the bill in both articles. The first story was run by NPR affliate KPLU on November 11 and can be found here. The second story ran on November 23 in Seattle's street newspaper Real Change and can be found here. Please direct questions on HB 1310 or other legislative issues to email@example.com.
