The State Board of Dental Examiners (Board) adopts an amendment to 22 TAC §102.1, concerning fees. This amendment to the existing rule will clarify the biennial nature of renewals for several license/registration types, establish a standalone nitrous oxide monitoring category for dental assistants pursuant to 22 TAC §114.4, and enable the Board to assess appropriate fees in a responsive manner for the prescription monitoring program, Texas.gov internet portal, and query and monitoring of practitioners through the National Practitioner Data Bank.
