Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Dental Practice Act. Provides that a person who uses teledentistry is considered to practice dentistry under the Act. Provides that a dentist may not delegate teledentistry services unless authorized in the Act. Changes the definition of "branches of dentistry" to include dental anesthesiology. Changes the definition of "teledentistry" to include limited patient diagnosis and treatment planning (rather than patient care) using synchronous and asynchronous communications under an Illinois licensed dentist's authority (rather than a dentist's authority).

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
225 ILCS 25/9from Ch. 111, par. 2309

Further amends the Illinois Dental Practice Act. Provides that the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation shall require that each applicant for a license to practice dentistry shall present satisfactory evidence that the applicant has passed the integrated National Board Dental Examination (rather than both parts of the National Board Dental Examination) administered by the Joint Commission on National Dental Examinations and has successfully completed an examination conducted by one of the following regional testing services: the Central Regional Dental Testing Service, Inc. (CRDTS), the Southern Regional Testing Agency, Inc. (SRTA), the Western Regional Examining Board (WREB), the Commission on Dental Competency Assessments (CDCA) (rather than the North East Regional Board (NERB)), or the Council of Interstate Testing Agencies (CITA).

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes reference to:
225 ILCS 25/17

Removes amendatory language in the definition of "teledentistry" that included limited patient diagnosis and treatment planning under an Illinois licensed dentist's authority. Removes language that provides that a person who uses teledentistry is considered to practice dentistry under the Act and that provides that a dentist may not delegate teledentistry services unless authorized in the Act.
