Clinical Compliance and Documentation Requirements for Texas Dentists.

About the Presenter:

For over a decade, Duane Tinker (aka the Toothcop) has worked with dental rules and regulations, first as a dental board investigator and more recently as a consultant in support of dentists, group practices, and DSOs. He is a fierce advocate in support of his clients and their efforts to ‘do the right thing’.He understands that knowing/doing the right thing is seldom simple. 

Tink has a matter-of-fact, non-judgmental, yet no B.S. teaching style. He fosters a safe learning environment that encourages dialog, so people can ask questions and get real answers.

Intended Audience: Dental offices that participate with Texas Medicaid. Specifically, Dentists, Dental Hygienists, Dental Assistants, Office Managers, and Front Office/AdministrativeTeam Members.


Course Description:

The dental profession is subject to a multitude of rules and relations. While the rules and regulations are available, dentists and their staff are left to their own devices to find them, learn them, and comply with them. Neither the dental board nor Medicaid representatives will answer questions except to read the rules when asked how to apply them. Well, it is time for a change!

This course will explore topics including ‘how often to review medical and dental histories’, informed consent for treatment, a permissible delegation of duties for auxiliary staff, rules and regulations related to prescribing controlled substances, rules related to sedation/anesthesia, and recordkeeping. The presentation will detail the multitude of documentation/recordkeeping requirements from the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners, and the Texas Medicaid program.


Course Objectives:

Participants will learn:  

  • The changes to the TSBDE Rule Concerning the standard care in Texas for vital signs and medical histories

  • Rules concerning permissible delegation of duties for dental assistants particularly those of coronal polishing and sealant placement
