Updates to ARSD Chapter 20:43:0812/11/2019
Updates to ARSD Chapter 20:43:08, the administrative rules regarding dental assistants and registered dental assistants, are now in effect. The updated rules are intended to provide clarity in the area of dental assistant versus registered dental assistant functions and were drafted with significant input from stakeholder organizations over the course of the last year. The updated rules were approved by the Board of Dentistry at a public hearing in October, the Interim Rules Review Committee at a public hearing in November, and went into effect December 4, 2019. Please take a moment to review these rules. If you have any questions, please contact the Board of Dentistry office.
