We would like to congratulate ALL Dental Assistants in Nebraska......we made history today in our state! 

Effective January 1, 2018, Nebraska Dental Assistants will have the opportunity to apply for licensure in the state of Nebraska. 

Legislative bill #18, was written by the Nebraska Dental Association and Nebraska Dental Assistants Association to develop a scope of practice for Dental Assistants and to expanded functions for both Dental Assistants and Hygienists.  This bill was passed in the unicameral on March 23, 2017.  After the Governor signs the bill, rules and regulations and specific criteria for the expanded functions will be written and approved by the Board of Dentistry, and then ultimately approved by the Governor.

More information to come on the process of how to apply for the licensure when all of the details are worked out with the Department of Health and Human Services.
