POLICIES AND GUIDELINES FOR THE TRAINING OF DENTAL AUXILIARIES.
American Dental Association, Chicago, IL. Council on Dental Education.
ALTHOUGH THE DENTAL PROFESSION NOW SEEKS SUPPORT FOR AUXILIARY TRAINING PROGRAMS FROM EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTES OTHER THAN DENTAL SCHOOLS, IT IS CONCERNED THAT TRAINING IN NONDENTAL SCHOOL SETTINGS SUCH AS JUNIOR COLLEGES, TECHNICAL INSTITUTES, UNIVERSITY EXTENSION PROGRAMS, AND POST-HIGH SCHOOL VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS PREVENTS TRAINEE EXPOSURE TO MEDICAL AND DENTAL PERSONNEL IN A TOTALLY PROFESSIONAL ENVIRONMENT, MAY PREVENT ADEQUATE CLINICAL TRAINING, AND MAY LEAD TO ENCROACHMENT BY COLLEGE EDUCATORS ON THE PROFESSION'S RIGHT TO DETERMINE THE AUXILIARY'S DUTIES. COUNCIL POLICY WILL CONTINUE TO ENCOURAGE DEVELOPING NEW AUXILIARY TRAINING PROGRAMS IN DENTAL SCHOOL SETTINGS BUT RECOMMENDS COOPERATION BETWEEN DENTAL SCHOOL AND JUNIOR COLLEGE PROGRAMS. COUNCIL POLICY ON AUXILIARY TRAINING PROGRAMS IN NONDENTAL SCHOOL SETTINGS COVERS SCHOOL ACCREDITATION, ADVISORY COMMITTEES, EDUCATION AND EXPANSION OF DUTIES AND FUNCTIONS OF ASSISTANTS AND HYGIENISTS, AND COUNCIL RELATIONSHIPS WITH ACCREDITING AGENCIES. GUIDELINES TO AID MEMBERS OF THE PROFESSION AND EDUCATORS OUTSIDE THE PROFESSION IN DEVELOPING NEW PROGRAMS AND FACILITIES FOR DENTAL HYGIENISTS, ASSISTANTS, AND LABORATORY TECHNICIANS PERTAIN TO (1) PROFESSIONAL DUTIES OF THE AUXILIARIES, (2) FACULTY, (3) CURRICULUM, WITH EMPHASIS UPON ARRANGEMENTS FOR CLINICAL PRACTICE, AND (4) CERTIFICATION. A DESCRIPTION OF THE COUNCIL'S ACCREDITATION PROGRAM AND A LIST OF RELATED PUBLICATIONS AVAILABLE THROUGH THE COUNCIL ARE INCLUDED.
