A bill allowing dental therapists to practice in the U.S. Virgin Islands has cleared two committees in the territory's unicameral Legislature. The bill would authorize dental therapy and allow certain routine services to be administered by trained providers other than dentists. A companion bill introduced a measure requiring the appointment of a dental therapist to the Virgin Islands dental board. Both received initial committee approvals in August.
