The steps to becoming a dental assistant in Kansas

All regulatory oversight in Kansas over the dental profession is handled by the Kansas Dental Board. There are two levels of dental assistant in Kansas and we get in the details about them both below.

Entry Level Dental Assistant – The basic dental assistant in Kansas has no required training or certification to work the basic function of the job.

Dental Assistant with Expanded Duties – If you want to become a Dental Assistant with Expanded Duties you will have to have to get training for different expanded duties and that training may differ for each one. For instance, to do coronal polishing you can just get training in the job by the licensed dentist. But, if you want to be able to do coronal scaling, you will have to complete a training that is approved by the Kansas Dental Board. So, if you want exoanded duties as a dental assistant in Kansas, just be sure to get clarification from the dentist on what you will need to do to make it happen and make sure to communicate with the board.
