CHICAGO (June 24, 2013)—The Dental Assisting National Board, Inc. (DANB) recently published the 2013 editions of its two state publications, which feature the latest state-by-state dental assisting requirements.

DANB's State Career Ladder Templates for Dental Assistants and DANB's State Fact Booklet are must-have resources — both in print and online — for dental assistants, educators, state legislators, oral healthcare organizations and state dental boards.

DANB's 2013 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 each 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 2013 State Fact Booklet provides a synopsis of current state requirements and excerpts from state dental practice acts related specifically to the dental assistant, as well as dental board contact information, the number of DANB certificants in each state, comparative salary information, information on expanded functions and radiography requirements, general dental assistant-related information on anesthesia and sedation regulations, and a list of Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA)-accredited dental assisting programs.

"DANB's state publications are a great resource for dental professionals who are looking for the latest information on dental assisting regulations and requirements — all in one place," said DANB Executive Director Cindy Durley, M.Ed., MBA. "DANB also publishes this information on its website, so the information can be accessed at the click of a button."

Information from both publications can be found in the "Meet State Requirements" section of DANB's website.

While visitors to DANB's website can download much of this information at no cost, those who wish to obtain print copies can order them from DANB for a fee. To place an order for the publications, download the order form or call 1-800-367-3262.
