CHICAGO (June 3, 2010) – The Dental Assisting National Board, Inc. (DANB) offers two publications that feature the most-up-to-date dental assisting requirements. DANB’s 2010 State Career Ladder Templates for Dental Assistants and DANB’s 2010 State Fact Booklet are both must-have resources for dental assistants, educators, state legislators, oral healthcare organizations, and state dental boards.

DANB’s 2010 State Career Ladder Templates for Dental Assistants features easy-to-use charts with information on each state's rules and regulations for dental assistants. Each state chart highlights job designations for dental assistants; education, exam, and training requirements; allowable functions; non-delegable functions; and levels of supervision required in that state. This information is particularly useful for dental assistants interested in relocating, educators answering questions about state regulations, dental offices needing helpful printouts, and legislators or state dental boards comparing state regulations.

DANB’s 2010 State Fact Booklet provides a synopsis of current state requirements and excerpts from state dental practice acts related specifically to the dental assistant. It also includes State Board of Dentistry contact information, DANB exams accepted/required in each state, the number of assistants holding DANB Certification or other DANB certificates in that state, comparative salary information, general information on expanded functions and radiography requirements, and a list of Commission on Dental Accreditation-accredited dental assisting programs.

Information from both state publications can be found on DANB’s Web site under the State-Specific Information.
