News Release
Dental Pilot Project Rules Advisory Committee meets June 11 - 06/08/18

June 6, 2018

Dental Pilot Project Rules Advisory Committee meets June 11

What: One of a series of rules advisory committee (RAC) meetings by the Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division Oral Health Program to discuss amendments to dental pilot project rules.

When: June 11, 9-11 a.m. A public comment period will be held at the end of the meeting.

Where: Portland State Office Building, Room 1A, 800 NE Oregon St., Portland. The public can also attend remotely by telephone conference line at 888-273-3658, participant code 76-64-09.

Agenda: Review background information; brief overview of the rulemaking process; review draft amended rules; next steps

Background: The purpose of the RAC is to provide feedback and input on the development of amended rule language, as well as review the statement of need and fiscal impact for the proposed rules.

Senate Bill 738, passed by the Oregon State Legislature in 2011, allows the Oregon Health Authority to approve dental pilot projects once an application has been approved. These projects are intended to evaluate the quality of care, access, cost, workforce, and efficacy by teaching new skills to existing categories of dental personnel; developing new categories of dental personnel; accelerating the training of existing categories of dental personnel; or teaching new oral health care roles to previously untrained persons.

Materials: Copies of materials are available online at healthoregon.org/dpp.
