Default just got my brakes changed but the brake pad light is still on

So a about two weeks ago my break pad warning light came on. i have an 06 cooper S and i didnt know what the light meant so i looked it up and i found that it is the light indicating that my break pads were worn below the minimum tolerance that BMW/Mini likes. so i scheduled an appointment to have them changed. I've since had them changed but the light is still on.
Is this something i just need to have a dealer reset? is there something i can do to reset it?

i dont think they replaced anything other than the brake pads. they also turned a couple of the rotors i guess. the brakes work just fine just its kinda annoying to have a light on the dash always on like that.
