In this episode, we have an emergency session about the scope of practice expansion for dental assistants proposed in the new bills presented in Washington State. We brought in two hygienists from Washington State and one Dental Assistant to discuss! Listen and feel free she share! Please be active in your state!

Key Takeaways –

  • You need to protect your profession.
  • DAs are NOT the enemy, they are just players being used by the dental association.
  • Standardization is important for everyone, work to get this done in your state!
