Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Dental Practice Act. Provides that a person who uses teledentistry practices dentistry within the meaning of the Act. Provides that a dentist may utilize and delegate dental services to a dental hygienist or dental assistant using telehealth only under the supervision requirements as specified in the Act for in-person patient care. Provides that a dental assistant who has at least 2,000 hours of direct clinical patient care experience and who has completed a structured training program provided by a continuing education provider approved by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation may perform specified procedures. Provides that a dental assistant who has completed specified training may perform coronal scaling and intracoronal temporization of a tooth under the supervision of a dentist. Changes the definition of "public health setting" to include a prison. 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).
