Session Law 2012-187 (Senate Bill 810) was signed by the Governor on July 16, 2012 and is now effective. See changes affecting rulemaking specifically GS 150B-19.1 in Section 3.
Amended Rules Allow Dentists and Dental Hygienists to take all
continuing education classes online.
(Amended rule 21NCAC 16R.0103 and 21NCAC 16I.0102)
Amended Rules create new categories of "retired dentist" and designate total number of CE hours necessary for each category.
(Amended rule 21NCAC 16R.0106)
An advertising flyer from the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS) incorrectly stated that use of any (emphasis in the original) oral sedative used in-office requires a sedation permit. The NC Dental Board's policy is that "administration of a single dose of a minor psychosedative to children or adults prior to the commencement of treatment on the day of the appointment..." is considered anxiolysis and DOES NOT require a sedation permit (21NCAC 16Q.0101(3)).
A dentist whose use of a minor psychosedative complies with this
definition of anxiolysis need not attend the DOCS course.
Board-Approved Courses for Minimal Sedation

However, the Dental Board does not endorse or recommend any particular continuing education course and is not responsible for the quality of any course content.
