Radiology Permit Holder Statistics
Total # DANB Certified Assistants:357
Total # Graduates of Accredited Dental Assisting Programs:632
Total # Both DANB Certified AND Accredited Graduates:272

NOTE: This statistical information is based SOLELY on currently renewed licenses and permits. No voided licenses or permits have been included in these numbers. Furthermore, a specialist may hold more than one specialty license.

The statistical information detailing “Active Licenses” means the dentist, dental hygienist, or radiology permit holder has a currently renewed license or permit (not voided) and practices within the State of Mississippi. However, pursuant to Miss. Code Ann. 73-9-19, “licensed dentists or dental hygienists actively practicing at a veterans hospital, federal government facility or residency graduate school program at the time of renewal” also are categorized as “Active.” The statistical information detailing “Inactive Licenses” means the dentist, dental hygienist, or radiology permit holder has a currently renewed license or permit (not voided) and does NOT practice within the State of Mississippi.
