Watch the following video regarding the dental assistant coronal scaling addition to the IL Dental Practice Act. Note that starting January 2023, Dental Assistants (DAs) must have a 32-hour Coronal Scaling certification to perform coronal scaling on children. DAs with a 16-hour scaling certificate were NOT "grandfathered in" and may NOT continue providing coronal scaling until they complete the requirements for the new certification.
