The Dentist and Dental Hygienist Compact project team approved the final draft of the Dentist and Dental Hygienist Compact legislation in January 2023.
This legislation will be distributed to the states for enactment during the 2023 legislative sessions. The Compact will go into effect once enacted into law by seven states.
The project team was composed of professionals, state regulators, and representatives of professional organizations, as well as staff from the National Center for Interstate Compacts at the Council of State Governments, which is facilitating the project.
