State Dental Assisting Licensure Information

Dental assisting requirements vary from state to state, which can make it difficult to know what the requirements, scope of practice, and procedures are for dental assistants.  As the largest, oldest professional association for dental assistants in America, ADAA has created a comprehensive list of useful links to help you navigate these often complicated regulations.

Using the links below, you will have instant access to state requirements, state websites, state regulations, state registration information, and state scopes of practice directly from source of that information. 

Please use the map or the drop down menu below the map to select a state.

 

If you find any links that do not work, have suggestions, or have any questions please feel free to contact ADAA at legislation@adaausa.org.
