Dental Practice Insights Tip of the Week

Dental Practice Insights

All dental assistants were required to renew their licenses on or before October 31, 2019. Therefore, all dental assistants in your office should now have a revised—and current—license posted in your office. It should indicate a 10/31/2021 expiration date. The MDS Dental Practice and Benefits Committee encourages all dental offices to do a spot check on license postings to be sure that all dental assistants have updated their licenses and that the licenses are posted in an area where they can be observed by the public. 

Reminder: All licensed dental professionals (dentist, dental hygienist, and dental assistant) in your office must post a current professional license or a copy of said license. This is a common violation cited by the Board of Registration in Dentistry, and one that can easily be avoided by doing a simple annual spot check.

If your practice has multiple locations, the professional licenses must be posted in each location.
