Texas Register Preamble

The State Board of Dental Examiners (Board) adopts this amendment to 22 TAC §108.8 Records of the Dentist. The adopted amendment specifies the maximum cost a dentist can charge a patient for duplication of the patient's CBCT scan. This amendment is adopted with changes to include a Texas Administrative Code reference to the proposed text as published in the January 8, 2021, issue of the Texas Register (46 TexReg 270). The rule will be republished.

One comment was received after publication of the proposed rule amendment during the official comment period.
