Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

of any dental laboratory to construct or repair, extraorally, prosthetic
dentures, bridges, or other replacements for a part of a tooth, a tooth, or
teeth. A dental laboratory so employed may, with the knowledge of the
dentist, subcontract with another dental
laboratory for all or a portion of such construction or repair. A dental
laboratory so employed or engaged, when
constructing or repairing such dentures, bridges or replacements,
exclusively, directly and solely for dentists,
and not for the public or any part thereof, shall not be deemed
or considered to be practicing dentistry as defined in this Act.
Dental laboratories may advertise, but such advertisements may be directed
only toward dentists. Each advertisement shall contain the following language:
"Available only to licensed dentists". Advertisements in trade journals
or professional publications for dentists, or direct mail solicitations
addressed to dentists, need not contain such language.
