Dental Hygentists Allowed To Perform More Dental Services
05/15/2012

Gov. Sam Brownback has signed a law that
expands the types of work that dental hygienists will be allowed to
do.
     The new law will allow dental hygienists to perform such tasks
as pulling baby teeth, teeth cleaning and providing temporary
fillings.
     The bill was designed to address a shortage of dentists in Kansas,
particularly in rural areas. But critics say it doesn't go far
enough.
     The bill also requires the Board of Regents to add more slots
for Kansas residents at the University of Missouri-Kansas City
dental school. Those students would be required to work in
underserved areas of Kansas for at least four years after
graduation.
     Kansas does not have a dental school.
