A higher power for Virginia dental assistants
from The Washington Times
A proposal that would allow a new class of dental assistants in Virginia to work in patients' mouths with high-speed instruments has many in the professional community gnashing their teeth. The state Board of Dentistry is scheduled on Friday to take up the matter, which was proposed by Denice Burnette, the only dental assistant II (DAII) in the state. "DAIIs," effective March 2011, require much more extensive schooling and training than regular dental assistants.
