January 1, 2017 - The Dental Board of California (Board) has completed the Pediatric Anesthesia Study regarding whether or not California’s present laws, regulations, and policies are sufficient to provide protection of pediatric patients during dental sedation and anesthesia. The Board held four meetings to discuss this issue and took public comment at each meeting.

The final report, board recommendations, and the record of public comments can be viewed on this website.
