Identification of removable full or partial prosthetic devices
Education (EDN) CHAPTER 16, TITLE 8, ARTICLE 133
§ 6612. Identification of removable full or partial prosthetic
devices. 1. Except as provided herein, every dentist licensed in this
state making or directing to be made a removable prosthetic denture,
bridge, appliance or other structure to be used and worn as a substitute
for natural teeth, shall offer to the patient for whom the prosthesis is
intended the opportunity to have such prosthesis marked with the
patient's name or initials. Such markings shall be accomplished at the
time the prosthesis is made and the location and methods used to apply
or implant them shall be determined by the dentist or the person acting
on behalf of the dentist. Such marking shall be permanent, legible and
cosmetically acceptable.

2. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if in the judgment of the dentist or
the person making the prosthesis, such identification is not practicable
or clinically safe, the identification marks may be omitted entirely.

3. The commissioner shall adopt rules and regulations and provide
standards necessary to carry out the provisions of this section.
