Workforce model update.

On February 25, legislation in Minnesota, SF 3122 and HF 3254, was introduced that included a provision to study the Community Dental Health Coordinator model. Both bills passed through a number of committees and are currently awaiting hearings in the House and Senate Finance Committees respectively.

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.
