Dental Examination for Enrollment

During the 2019 Legislative Session, House Bill 308 (HB308) was signed into law.  In response to this legislation, the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) has promulgated New Mexico Administrative Code (NMAC) 6.12.13.  Beginning July 1, 2021, this rule requires schools to verify student records of a dental examination within the past year prior to initial enrollment in the district or charter school. If the student has not had a dental examination within the past year, the parent or guardian may sign a Student Dental Examination Waiver indicating their understanding of the risks associated with the student not receiving a dental examination.
