Identification of new dentures.

Every complete upper and lower denture and removable partial denture fabricated by a denturist licensed under the provisions of chapter 18.30 RCW, or fabricated pursuant to the denturist's work order or under the denturist's direction or supervision, must be marked with the name of the patient for whom the denture is intended. The markings must be done during fabrication and must be permanent, legible, and cosmetically acceptable. The exact location of the markings and the methods used to apply or implant them must be determined by the denturist fabricating the denture. If, in the professional judgment of the denturist, this identification is not practical, identification must be provided as follows:
(1) The initials of the patient may be shown alone, if use of the patient's name is impracticable; or
(2) The identification marks may be omitted in their entirety if none of the forms of identification specified in subsection (1) of this section is practicable, clinically safe, or the patient declines.
