Expanded Functions Dental Assisting Certification Program

Students will receive training in terminology, anatomy, rubber dam technique, resin and amalgam restorative techniques for Class I, II, III, IV and V restorations, as well as the necessary matrix technique for each restoration.   Requirements: You must be currently employed and possess one of the following qualifications: be a Certified Dental Assistant, a dental assistant with at least two years hands-on dental assisting experience within the last five years or a licensed dental hygienist.   Course Content: An orientation and review resentation will be available online four weeks prior to the start of the course. Saturday, September 7, will be an additional review with the course entrance exam. The exam will be administered with both written and practical testing methods. Due to the advanced nature of this dental assisting course, an adequate knowledge of anatomy, terminology and instrumentation is essential for successful participation. Failure to take or pass either entrance exam will result in a withdraw, and a $450.00 fee will be assessed to cover non-recoupable costs. The remaining balance will be credited towards a future Expanded Functions (EFDA) program. Participants will have one year to complete the course. No refunds will be issued. Attendance is mandatory at all sessions. Any missed instructional session will result in a “0” and may warrant a withdraw from the program.
