AN ACT to amend the education law,  in  relation  to  registered  dental
  hygienists

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivision 1 of section 6605-b of the  education  law,  as
added by chapter 437 of the laws of 2001, is amended to read as follows:
  1.  [A] NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION HEREIN TO THE CONTRARY, A dental
hygienist shall not administer or monitor  nitrous  oxide  analgesia  or
local  infiltration anesthesia in the practice of dental hygiene without
a dental hygiene restricted local infiltration anesthesia/nitrous  oxide
analgesia  certificate  and  except  under the personal supervision of a
dentist and in conjunction with the performance of dental hygiene proce-
dures authorized by law and in accordance with  regulations  promulgated
by the commissioner. Personal supervision, for purposes of this section,
means  that  the  supervising dentist remains in the dental office where
the local infiltration anesthesia or nitrous  oxide  analgesia  services
are  being  performed,  personally  authorizes and prescribes the use of
local infiltration anesthesia or nitrous oxide analgesia for the patient
and, before dismissal of the patient, personally examines the  condition
of the patient after the use of local infiltration anesthesia or nitrous
oxide  analgesia  is  completed.  It  is  professional  misconduct for a
dentist to fail to provide the supervision required by this section, and
any dentist  found  guilty  of  such  misconduct  under  the  procedures
prescribed  in  section  sixty-five  hundred  ten of this title shall be
subject to the penalties prescribed in section sixty-five hundred eleven
of this title.
  S 2. Subdivision 1 of section 6606 of the education law, as amended by
chapter 437 of the laws of 2001, is amended to read as follows:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD09751-03-3
