Advocating for Access and Transparency
Currently, the practice of mobile dentistry in Ohio is not regulated. Oral Health Ohio has drafted legislation which requires Mobile Dental Facilities (MDF) to register with the Ohio State Dental Board (OSDB) so that the public is aware of who is operating the MDF in Ohio.
The legislation also requires that consumers who receive treatment and services through an MDF have access to and receive copies of their medical records.
This bill has been unanimously approved by the House Health Committee, and awaits a vote by the full House chamber, after which it will be sent to the Senate to repeat the process.
