Dental Assistant Requirements

In the state of Delaware, competency of dental assistants in specific duties is determined by the supervising dentist. The dentist is given full responsibility in deciding the scope of work to be allocated to the dental assistant.

Adequate training of dental assistants is solely the responsibility of the dentist.

In summary, the Delaware Board of Dentistry and Dental Hygiene places full responsibility for the work done by dental assistants directly upon the dentist.
