Today’s discussion: “Dentist and Dental Hygienist Compact”, Understanding The Specifics About It…
ABOUT THE COUNCIL OF STATE GOVERNMENTS:
The Council of State Governments (CSG) works with state government officials to strengthen the portability of occupational licenses and remove duplicative and overly-burdensome requirements.
Over the last 60 years, the number of jobs requiring an occupational license, or government approval to practice a profession, has grown from about one in 20 to nearly one in four. When implemented properly, occupational licensing can help protect the health and safety of consumers by requiring practitioners to undergo a designated amount of training and education in their field.
However, differences and disparities in occupational licensing laws across states can create barriers for those looking to enter the labor market and make it harder for workers to relocate across state lines. Certain populations—including military spouses and families, immigrants with work authorization, people with criminal records, and unemployed and dislocated workers—are affected especially hard by the requirements and variances of occupational licensing.
CSG National Center for Interstate Compacts
NCIC helps states collaborate on complex public policy issues to strengthen economies, protect public health and safety, and champion state sovereignty. It collaborates with state, federal and community partners to provide dedicated resources and stakeholder-informed solutions through interstate compacts.
DENTIST AND DENTAL HYGIENIST COMPACT.
The Council of State Governments (CSG) is partnered with the Department of Defense (DoD), the American Dental Association (ADA), and the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) to support the mobility of licensed dentists and dental hygienists through the development of a new interstate compact. This compact will create reciprocity among participant states, and reduce the barriers to license portability.
AS of March 3, 2023 update, The Dentist and Dental Hygienist Compact has been finalized and is available for enactment by the States.
- For dental hygienists and dentists in the state of Vermont to learn about the compact legislation.
- For attendants to have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers from someone who have being working for CSG, in the creation and development of the legislation piece that is ready to be enacted by states who are interested in a compact.
