Find it! Dental Assistant School or Dental Assistant Programs

By Peterson's Staff updated on Thursday, January 24, 2013
Interested in dental assisting? Dental assistant schools offer variety of educational options that you can pursue, including those that earn an associate degree.  If time is a factor, a shorter duration diploma program or certificate program might be a better option.

Searching for a dental assistant school or dental assistant programs

In some states, you must take the Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) exam in order to become a certified dental assistant. If your state requires this certification, it is very important to find a dental assistant school that prepares you not only to take the exam, but does so along the Dental Assistant National Board (DANB) standards.  Even if your state does not require certification, be sure to find out if the school you select offers some degree of clinical experience within the dental assistant course parameters, either in dental offices or an on-campus clinic, since this will help you in your dental assistant training.
