45:6-19.2. Upper and lower dentures and removable dental prostheses; markings
Every complete upper and lower denture and removable dental prosthesis fabricated by a dentist licensed by this State shall be marked with the name and social security number of the patient for whom the prosthesis is intended unless the patient objects thereto. The markings shall be done during fabrication and shall be permanent, legible and cosmetically acceptable. The exact location of the markings and the methods used to apply or implant them shall be determined by the dentist or dental laboratory fabricating the prosthesis on behalf of the dentist. If in the professional judgment of the dentist or dental laboratory this identification is not practicable, identification shall be provided as follows:
a. The social security number of the patient may be omitted if the name of the patient is shown;
b. The initials of the patient may be shown alone, if the use of the name of the patient is impracticable;
c. The identification marks may be omitted in their entirety if none of the forms of identification specified in subsections a. and b. of this section are practicable or clinically safe.
