DANB publishes 2014 editions of state books

The 2014 editions of the Dental Assisting National Board's (DANB) state books are now available in print and online.

The organization recently updated the Meet State Requirements section of its website with the latest state dental assisting requirements and contact information for each state. DANB also published the updated state dental assisting information in the 2014 editions of its state publications.

The 2014 State Career Ladder Templates for Dental Assistants has charts highlighting job designations for dental assistants; education, exam, and training requirements; allowable functions; nondelegable functions; and levels of supervision required in each state.

DANB's 2014 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-accredited dental assisting programs.

DANB exams and certifications are recognized or required by 38 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Air Force, and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
