Legal Provisions on Expanded Functions for Dental Hygienists and Assistants. Summarized by State. Second Edition.
Johnson, Donald W.; Holz, Frank M.
This second edition summarizes and interprets, from the pertinent documents of each state, those provisions which establish and regulate the tasks of hygienists and assistants, with special attention given to expanded functions. Information is updated for all jurisdictions through the end of 1973, based chiefly on materials received in response to inquiries to State boards of dentistry. Although the most relevant and significant portions of the state dental laws were selected for summation and interpretation, every effort was made to retain or closely paraphrase the original text or, when it seemed appropriate, to quote directly. The National Summary section, consisting of five tables and a map, gives a composite picture of the status of expanded functions for dental auxiliaries on a nationwide basis, as these existed at the end of 1973.
