KL Gerakan seeks changes to Dental Bill 2012

Kuala Lumpur Gerakan division leaders are calling for changes to the soon to be tabled Dental Bill 2012, including removing the jail sentence for dentists performing procedures not in their specialty.

They told a press conference at their division headquarters today that they would send their recommendations to Health Minister Liow

Tiong Lai and all MPs before the bill is tabled in Parliament.

“There is not even one dentist amongst the members of parliament, so we will list out which sections (need changes) and let them read through it,” said Kuala Lumpur Gerakan division secretary Wong Ruen Yuan (right), who is also a dentist by profession.

The bill is due to be tabled in the upcoming parliamentary session which starts next week, and would replace the Dental Act 1971.
