March 15, 2021: The Board of Dentistry (BOD) Regulatory-Legislative committee moved a recommendation at their meeting in fall 2020 when they reviewed the regulations pertaining to the administration of sedation and anesthesia that would allow CRNAs to administer moderate anesthesia in a dental office where the dentist does NOT hold a permit. You may view the proposed amendments to these regulations here. In response to these proposed amendments, VSOMS sent a letter to the BOD expressing concerns pertaining to the utilization of CRNAs in dental offices.
