The best trained, highest level Dental Assistants in Massachusetts are STI graduates.
As of January 2015, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires all dental assistants to be licensed. There are four levels of dental assistants: Expanded Function Dental Assistant, Certified Dental Assistant, Formally Trained and On-the-job Trained. The level of the dental assistant dictates what duties they may do and under what supervision by a dentist. Graduates of STI are eligible to become Expanded Function Dental Assistants, the highest level in the state.
