It has been an interesting journey, but the new Administrative Rules of the MI Board of Dentistry were filed with the Secretary of State on October 8, 2014! The rules took effect immediately. We encourage everyone to READ THE RULES as there are alot of "house keeping" changes to make the rules easier to understand, and there are other additions and changes! Fines for not following the rules have been increased, information on Silver Alloy was added, Volunteer hours can be used for CE credits, along with other changes. PLEASE, take a few minutes to READ THE RULES!
