Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: January 26, 2015 01:59 PM
From: Senator John N. Wozniak
To: All Senate members
Subject: Dental Anesthesia
In the near future, I plan to re-introduce legislation providing for the allowance of dentists to administer anesthesia services in a hospital or other medical facility or to receive payment for services rendered at a hospital or other medical facility. This bill was introduced last session as SB 605 and was co-sponsored by Senators BREWSTER, BROWNE, TARTAGLIONE, FONTANA and COSTA.

Under current regulations, the only eligible places of service for dentists are the dentist’s office and/or a dental clinic. This would expand the eligible places to include a hospital or a medical facility.

If you have questions regarding this bill, please contact Josh Myers of my staff at 787-5400 or by email to jmyers@pasenate.com. Thank you for your consideration.

Introduced as SB729
