AADB, DANB launch state dental practice act database

May 19, 2014

To help make locating a state's dental practice act and dental board administrative rules and regulations easier, the Dental Assisting National Board, Inc. and the American Association of Dental Boards launched a new database for AADB members and state regulators.

"Currently, dental practice acts, rules and regulations can be difficult to find, with states differing in the location and accessibility of documents," said DANB Executive Director Cindy Durley, M.Ed. 

With the database, they hope to bring together the material in one place. Through the resource, AADB members and state regulators can select a state to find its statutes, regulations and administrative rules governing the practice of each member of the dental team.

"Our members often reference other state's practice acts, rules and regulations in the course of their work," said AADB Executive Director James Tarrant. "We are excited for this collaboration to bring a new and valuable resource to our membership."
