Recent changes to New York State Education Law and Regulations of the Commissioner of Education have increased the scope of practice for New York State licensed registered dental assistants.  A memorandum and pamphlet was mailed September 2007 to all dentists, dental hygienists, registered dental assistants & other interested parties in New York State.  Exclusionary wording in the Law reads as follows:  "a registered dental assistant shall not diagnose, perform surgical procedures, perform irreversible procedures or procedures that would alter the hard or soft tissue of the oral & maxillofacial area or perform any other procedures determined by the department".  

The most significant change in the Law is that

"only if a registered dental assistant AND their employer feel, after formal training, it is within the assistant's ability & expertise, under direct supervision of a dentist that assistant may:

  • place & remove temporary restorations
  • place, condense, & carve amalgam restorations
  • place & condense non-metallic restorations"
