A message from our president

Robyn Wilson

Nddaa President

Greetings from the North Dakota Dental Assistants Association

Thank you to everyone who attended our annual meeting in Bismarck. I would like to especially thank our board members for their hard work during this past year and I want to extend a warm welcome our new incoming board members.

For those individuals who are certified by the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB),please be aware that DANB has added a 1 CE credit requirement in bloodborne pathogens in addition to 2 CE's of infection control in order to renew your certification.

The first North Dakota Mission of Mercy was held on Sept 28th & 29th, 2018 in Bismarck and it was a great success. A 50 chair dental clinic was set up at the Civic Center to provide free dental care to those in need. Over the course of two days, 912 patients received donated dental care.

In other news, the ND Dental Foundation has created a grant to increase the dental assisting workforce. If someone is working as a dental assistant, but is not currently registered and would like to be, they are eligible to receive $400 in reimbursement for review courses and DANB exams. Also, any current dental assistant working is eligible to receive a per diem reimbursement for visiting high schools and promoting and answering questions about dental assisting as a career. We are hoping that by making more young people aware of dental assisting, we can increase the number of assistants in ND. For more information please visit www.smilenorthdakota.org. Look under for-the-public tab then under allied-dental-education.

Please check out North Dakota State Board of Dental Examiners Update Protocol for Continuing Education, located on the left side of this page.

ADAA Mission Statement: “To advance the careers of dental assistants and to promote the dental assisting profession in the matters of education, legislation, credentialing and professional activities which enhance the delivery of quality dental health care to the public.”

Have a wonderful fall.
