VeteransFlagSB 622 provides that on or after July 1, the Department of Healthcare and Family Services must provide dental services, including prevention and treatment of periodontal disease and dental caries disease. Dental services are defined in the bill as “diagnostic, preventative, or corrective procedures provided by or under the supervision of a dentist in the practice of his or her profession.” The bill, according to staff in the Office of the Secretary of the Senate, will be placed on the Senate calendar for a third reading, but no date has been set.
