Dental Practice Insights Tip of the Week

Dental Practice Insights

The MDS Dental Practice and Benefits Committee shared with members in January 2019 that the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Dentistry (BORID) had expressed concern regarding unlicensed dental assistants, and we urged dentists to comply with this state law. Unfortunately, the MDS recently learned from BORID that there are still a number of dental assistants practicing without a license, with an expired license, and/or without sufficient continuing education credits. Due to this persistent issue, BORID has advised the MDS that it will be cracking down on violators in the coming months, and this will include increasing penalties against dentist-owners who employ and allow auxiliaries to practice without a valid license.  

Please heed our warning and make sure your dental assistants are practicing under a current license for your protection and your patients' protection. Check your license posting today on your wall to be sure.
