All dental assistants can go about and perform any basic procedures in a support function, provide all regular appropriate chairside duties and tasks if they are under the supervision of a licensed dentist directly. Any and all the training of dental assistants in Wisconsin is done by the respective dentist. That being said, they do have to maintain records in detail of all training given to their training dental assistants. All regulation of dentistry is managed and governed by Wisconsin’s dental act. Registration and licensing is overseen and managed by the Wisconsin Dentistry Examining Board.
