Governor Hochul Signs Into Law Bill to Collect Practice Information as Part of Licensure

Governor Hochul has signed into law, as Chapter 702 of the Laws of 2021, S.3543 (Stavisky) / A.3050 (Fahy), a bill that NYSDA opposed on the New York State Education Department collecting practice information as part of the professional licensure process.  NYSDA had taken the position that this information, which will be used by the New York State Department of Health to assess health workforce issues, should be collected by the Department of Health as it does for physicians and should not be tied to licensing requirements.  However, NYSDA did not expect the Governor would veto the bill, which was supported by many other professions (optometry, nursing, occupational therapy, etc.) as a potential mechanism for them to advance their expanded scope of practice desires.  You can read the enacted bill here: Licensure Practice Information Collection Bill.  You can read the Sponsor Memorandum explaining the bill here: Sponsor Memorandum for Licensure Practice Information Collection Bill

  • GKAS 2022 at the Bayview Ave. School Video Our 2022 GKAS event was held at the Bayview Ave. School of Arts & Science in Freeport, NY. This was our first "in-school" event in the 19 year history of our program as well as the first time we did a combined indoor and outdoor event. The 550 students there received free dental exams, fluoride treatments, sealants, oral hygiene instructions and nutrition education by our 100 volunteers. The Lion’s Club of Long Beach also provided free eye exams. We thank our wonderful Volunteers as well as Dr. Mary Garguilo, Principal of the Bayview Ave. School, Mr. Stanley Bergman, CEO of Henry Schein, Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine, Northwell Health, the New York State Dental Foundation, Sports Depot, The Long Beach Lion's Club, Fidelis Care, Liberty Dental, and Vivo Entertainment for their help in making this day possible as well as Michael Krien of Patkin Photography for putting together this wonderful video.
