VA Board of Dentistry Notices of Intended Regulatory Action Open for Public Comment

There are two Virginia Board of Dentistry (BOD) Notices of Intended Regulatory Action (NOIRA) that are now open for public comment. Each comment period ends on March 31, 2021. The VDA encourages members to take this opportunity to voice opinions and suggestions to the BOD. Following the comment period, the BOD will discuss each NOIRA during a future meeting and take comments into consideration during their discussion. Below is information on each NOIRA and a link directing you to the comment page.
