Provides that the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation may discipline a dentist for violations of the restrictions on teledentistry.

Requires that a dentist providing teledentistry must provide the patient with his or her name, direct telephone number, and physical practice address. Provides that a dentist may treat a patient through teledentistry in the absence of a provider-patient relationship when, in the professional judgment of the dentist, dental or medical emergency care is required. Effective immediately.
