 AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to dental  hygiene  prac-
   tice and local infiltration anesthesia and nitrous oxide
 
   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  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 perform-
 ance of dental hygiene procedures 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  miscon-
 duct  under  the procedures prescribed in section sixty-five hundred ten
 of this [title] ARTICLE shall be subject to the penalties prescribed  in
 section sixty-five hundred eleven of this [title] ARTICLE.
   § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
