 AN  ACT  to  amend  the education law, in relation to infiltration anes-
   thesia and nitrous oxide analgesia in the practice of dental assisting

   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. Section 6608 of the education law, as amended by chapter  390  of
 the laws of 2019, is amended to read as follows:
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
