Did you know that the Florida Dental Association (FDA) website has a chart of remediable tasks delegable to dental assistants and hygienists? This member-only benefit lists the various remediable tasks with the corresponding level of supervision required. In addition, it lists the level of training required before the assistant or hygienist can perform the task.
To access the chart, please visit floridadental.org/advocacy/delegation-of-duties. To view the entire rule of tasks delegable to dental hygienists and assistants, please visit bit.ly/2PSBtAC.
For a full list of the rules governing the practice of dentistry please visit: bit.ly/39LLt5U.
If you have further questions on remediable tasks, supervision levels or other Florida Board of Dentistry (BOD) rules, please contact BOD Liaison Dr. Joe Calderone at firstname.lastname@example.org or FDA Director of Third Party Payers and Professional Affairs Ms. Casey Stoutamire at email@example.com.
