Dentistry Smiles on Veterans Program

Legislation was passed on March 13th to delay the start of mandatory electronic prescribing in New York State until March 27, 2016. The New York State Dental Association (NYSDA) was part of a large coalition of healthcare providers urging this delay in order to provide a smooth transition into e-prescribing and to ensure patient safety was not compromised.
