FCA-2014-8117

Our audit identified matters that are considered reportable under Government Auditing Standards. These matters include: 1) The Board allows dentists to provide sedation services before it inspects the dental facilities to ensure that the proper skills, equipment, drugs, support personnel, and procedures are in place to safely perform dental sedation and respond to medical emergencies; 2) The Board does not conduct periodic inspections after it issues the initial sedation permits to ensure that dental facilities maintain the ability to safely perform dental sedation and respond to medical emergencies; and 3) The Board does not verify that dentists complete the continuing education hours that are required as a condition for renewal of anesthesia and sedation permits. Details about these matters are provided in the Findings, Recommendations, and Response section of the report.
