This information can also be accessed on the Board website section regarding Statutes and Rules. You will need to study all documents listed under Board Statues and Rules and the first five documents listed under Board Related Regulations.
- Familiarize yourself with the current Center for Disease Control Guidelines. These can be found on the CDC website.
- All applicants for Minnesota dental licensure are tested on the same subject matter. The same exam is used with dental, dental therapy, dental hygiene and dental assistant applicants, so it is important that examinees study all of the statutes and rules, not just those that apply only to their particular profession.
