Dental Assistants

Dental Assistants Registration Information

Dental Assistants must hold a current permit issued by the Arkansas State Board of Dental Examiners to perform dental radiography, coronal polishing, administration/monitoring of nitrous oxide, and sedation monitoring in the dental office. If a dental assistant is performing any of these duties without a permit, they are doing so illegally.

Radiography, coronal polishing, nitrous oxide administration, and sedation monitoring are considered "expanded duties".

You must successfully complete a nitrous oxide administration and monitoring course by one of the Board's approved instructors:
