Regulating Dental Assistants: Revisions of the Michigan Dental Practice Act. Health Manpower Policy Discussion Paper Series No.: C2.
Feldstein, Paul J.; And Others
This document investigates the regulation of dental assistants in Michigan. Emphasis is placed on increased dental productivity from increased use of auxiliaries, utilization of dental auxiliaries, and educational and training requirements for certification and licensure. Results of the investigation indicate: (1) support should be given for the use of expanded function auxiliaries (EFAs) in dental practice in Michigan; (2) serious consideration be given to the exclusion of provisions reserving dental functions to specific categories of dental auxiliary; and (3) education and training requirements should be made as open and flexible as possible to assure that an adequate supply of low cost, but highly competent labor, will be available for practice.
