Dental Pilot Project Rules Advisory Committee Meets July 9

July 5, 2018

What: A meeting of the rules advisory committee on dental pilot projects

When: July 9, 9-11 a.m. A public comment period will be held at the end of the meeting.

Where: Portland State Office Building, 800 NE Oregon St., Room 1A, Portland. Conference line: 888-273-3658, participant code 76-64-09

Agenda: Review background information; brief overview of the rulemaking process; review draft amended rules; next steps.

Background: Senate Bill 738, passed by the Oregon State Legislature in 2011, allows the Oregon Health Authority to approve dental pilot projects once an application has been approved. These projects are intended to evaluate the quality of care, access, cost, workforce, and efficacy by teaching new skills to existing categories of dental personnel; developing new categories of dental personnel; accelerating the training of existing categories of dental personnel; or teaching new oral health care roles to previously untrained persons.

The Oral Health Program at the Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division is holding a series of rules advisory committee (RAC) meetings to discuss amendments to rules related to dental pilot projects.

The purpose of the RAC is to provide feedback and input on the development of amended rule language, as well as review the statement of need and fiscal impact for the proposed rules.
