(from Ch. 111, par. 2349)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2026)
Identification of dentures.
(a) Every complete upper and
lower denture and removable dental prosthesis fabricated by a dentist,
or fabricated pursuant to his or her prescription, shall
be marked with the name of the patient
for whom the prosthesis is intended. The markings shall be done during
fabrication and shall be permanent, legible and cosmetically acceptable.
The exact location of the markings and the methods used to apply or implant
them shall be determined by the dentist or dental laboratory fabricating
the prosthesis. If in the professional judgment of the dentist, this full
identification is not possible, the name may be omitted.
(b) Any removable dental prosthesis in existence
which was not marked in accordance with paragraph (a)
of this Section at the time of fabrication, shall be so marked at the
time of any subsequent rebasing or duplication.
