Board of Directors
Washington State Society of Mobile Dental Anesthesia
The HCA has been meeting with all three commissions (Dental, Medical, Nursing) to discuss mandated provider evaluations for contractors. This is the impetus for the formation of our society. Your membership in this society allows you to be involved and informed about legislation. We all need to work together to be sure these mandates are appropriate for what we all do every day.
The Dental Quality Assurance Committee (DQAC) is going to mandate all general anesthesia permit holders to have an on-site provider evaluation. We have been involved with this process from the beginning. We have submitted a provider evaluation form for approval. Once it is approved, our society will be credentialed to provide evaluations.
