Gov. Spitzer signs NYSDA legislation
July 10, 2007

Legislation introduced by NYSDA has been signed by Governor Spitzer that will require dentists to:

  • complete an additional 15 hours of CE per registration period
  • maintain current CPR certification
  • complete a course in ethics/jurisprudence

"There is no question that this landmark legislation will set a precedent in New York and throughout the nation, and it is only a matter of time before other licensed professionals follow suit," said Roy E. Lasky, NYSDA Executive Director.

More information about these new mandates will be shared with members as it becomes available.
