Missouri House Bill 1976, scheduled for a committee hearing in late March, would explicitly add "removal of hard and soft deposits from teeth" to duties permitted to all dental assistants. Although the board would be allowed to set conditions for dental assistants to scale, they would not be required to mandate any additional education or special regulation for scaling assistants.
