There is hereby created within the Division of Public and Behavioral Health the Advisory Committee on the State Program for Oral Health to advise and make recommendations to the Division concerning the Program.

The Advisory Committee shall:


At its first meeting and annually thereafter, elect a Chair from among its members;


Meet at the call of the Director, the Chair or a majority of its members as necessary and within the budget of the Advisory Committee; and
