Colorado Dental Association eNews 
 June 2016
Members of the CDA installed a new president and welcomed new members to its Executive Committee at the 2016 CDA Annual Session in Loveland, Colo, earlier this month. Plus, find out who received 2016 CDA leadership and service awards and what new policies were put in place to protect CDA members. 
The CDA Charitable and Educational Fund has a new name: the CDA Foundation. Don't let the simple name fool you; big things are in store as the foundation undergoes a transformation. The name change is just the first step of a strategic plan that aims to turn the foundation into an entity that better supports not only dental-related organizations in Colorado but also dental professionals. 
Effective July 1, dentists with moderate sedation or deep sedation/general anesthesia permits must use an end-tidal carbon dioxide monitor (capnograph) for patients administered moderate sedation or deep sedation/general anesthesia. More information is available in the May 2015 eNews and the Summer 2015 Journal of the Colorado Dental Association.
Thank you to the Colorado dentists and their teams that volunteered for the 2016 Colorado Mission of Mercy (COMOM) dental clinic, which took place June 17-18 in Brush, Colo. Because of you, about 700 patients from across the state received much-needed dental care.  
The American Dental Association announced a new collaboration with Wonderbox Technologies to create a credentialing service that allows dentists to enter their credentials into a securely designed web portal on the ADA website and then have those credentials be available to all payers. 
The CDA has become aware of an individual who has been soliciting sleep apnea services in Colorado. We believe this individual, who is asking for large sums of money and financial information about your company, has a criminal record. Do your due diligence and check into the background of any individual or company before entering into any agreement for products or services.
