The US Supreme Court held on February 25 that the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners is subject to the Federal Trade Commission's jurisdiction because the board is not "actively supervised" by the state. The FTC had taken administrative action against the board over "cease and desist" letters the board had sent regarding the unlicensed provision of teeth whitening services, a service the board believed to be within the definition of the practice of dentistry.

This webinar will present information about North Carolina’s regulatory model, background of the case and some lessons learned. Panelists will also discuss implications of the case from a central agency perspective. Discussion will also focus on the legislative perspective, covering enabling statutes, delegation of authority and what the “active supervision” component of the decision means.
