The regulation also requires that all licensed dentists and dental hygienists licensed by the State of Mississippi maintain a current certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Failure to comply with these requirements could result in revocation of license or other disciplinary action by the Board.

AEDSupplyStore has initiated the “Mississippi Dental AED Program,"  which provides all dentists and dental groups the opportunity to purchase AED’s at a significant discount for a limited time.
