Emergency Extension Request
To View Stage
On 8/19/2013 the board requested that this
emergency stage be extended until 3/15/2014.
Reason for Extension:
The Code of Virginia (Section 54.1-2709.5) requires dentists who provide or administer sedation or anesthesia in a dental office to obtain a permit issued by the Board. Emergency regulations authorizing issuance will expire on 9/13/13. The Board submitted proposed regulation to replace the emergency regulations on Townhall on 1/31/13; the proposed regulations are still awaiting approval in the Governor's office. Therefore, it is impossible to complete the replacement of the emergency regulations by the 9/13/13 expiration. The Board's inability to issue new sedation and anesthesia permits would seriously impact dental care in the Commonwealth.
This stage was approved by the Governor's office on 9/13/2013.
