Dental Assistant Position Qualifies for H-1B

The Administrative Appeals Office ("AAO") found that the position of Dental Assistant qualifies as a specialty occupation and is therefore suitable for an H-1B visa. However, the AAO sent the case back to USCIS to determine whether the applicant qualified for the position. The AAO found that the applicant must possess a license to practice dentisty in order to perform the duties required for the position. Read the AAO Decision.
