To qualify for a coronal polishing certificate, one of the current educational requirements states an individual must complete at least eight hours of clinical and didactic education in coronal polishing taken through a dental assisting program accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association and approved by the board.
This bill would amend Chapter 265 of the Occupations Code by expanding the list of acceptable dental institutions in which an individual can complete their educational requirement to include a dental school or dental hygiene school.
Expanding the list of acceptable dental institutions in which a person can complete their educational requirement decreases entry barriers to the dental industry. We support HB 2849 because it promotes our free market and individual liberty principles.
The second chamber sponsor is Senator Menendez.
