Monogramming Dentures: Not A Fashion Statement, A New Connecticut Law

Connecticut has laws about everything and as of yesterday we have more laws about more things.

I’ve taken great pleasure in writing about “interesting” Connecticut laws in this blog. Fortunately, there is no shortage of material.

I’m pleased to write that this past legislative session generated more laws. Earth shattering news, I know.

It seems that monogramming dentures was a concern for the legislature in this past session.

PA 08-24 requires all dentists to offer patients who need removable dentures the opportunity to have the patient’s name or initials placed on the prosthesis.  Further, the markings must be permanent, legible, and cosmetically acceptable.

Alas, the citizens of Connecticut can sleep soundly at night. Our legislature has made sure that your dentist offers monogramming for your dentures!

I’m waiting for the legislature to require all clothiers to offer me monogramming on my shirts.
