Your Committee on Health, to which was referred S.B. No. 933, S.D. 2, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO TEMPORARY LICENSURE OF DENTISTS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to ensure access to dental care in the state by clarifying that the Board of Dental Examiners (BDE) may issue a:

Your Committee has amended this bill by:
(1) Changing its effective date to July 1, 2020, to encourage further discussion; and
