Texas dental board director resigns ahead of hearing

The director of the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners has resigned ahead of an April legislative hearing where board critics plan to testify, according to a story in the Austin Statesman.

The agency's director of administration has taken over as acting executive director and will be at the State House Public Health Committee hearing on April 11.

The committee will hear public testimony regarding concerns about the dental board. Members of the Houston-based Texans for Dental Reform said they will speak about what they say are uneven and discriminatory enforcement of the dental practice laws, "overemphasis on protection of dentists," and conflicts of interest, according to the Statesman.
