Summary

Education for the dental auxiliary professions in Kentucky and articulation within the field are examined, based on the Kentucky Allied Health Project (KAHP), which designed an articulated statewide system to promote entry and exit of personnel at a variety of educational levels. The KAHP model promotes articulation in learning, planning, and resource allocation. Dental auxiliary occupations include assistants, hygienists, laboratory technicians, and expanded duty staff. Information is provided on the history of these professions, educational programs, accreditation, and regulatory practices. The Dental Auxiliary Discipline Advisory Group (DAG): (1) developed a core curriculum to allow students to advance from dental assisting to dental hygiene; (2) developed an articulation model for advanced placement for students transferring into higher-level programs; (3) negotiated a transfer agreement between the five vocational-technical system dental assisting programs and the three community college system dental hygiene programs; (4) surveyed student interest in articulated programs; (5) designed a student information brochure; and (6) recommended developing competency assessment. Additional DAG recommendations and the use of Program Evaluation and Review Technique are addressed. The transfer agreement and maps of schools offering dental auxiliary programs are appended. (SW)
