CDA Practice Support developed and published in April two new resources for practice owners who wish to help put their staff on the proper path to become a California-registered dental assistant. Both resources are in a one-page format that is easy to follow.
“Steps to Becoming a California-Registered Dental Assistant” outlines the required hours of work experience or formal training and dental board-approved courses that must be completed prior to taking the written RDA licensure examination. Final steps for completing and mailing the application are included.
Similarly, “Helping Your Out-of-State-Trained Dental Assistant to become a California-Registered Dental Assistant” outlines the same requirements but is specifically designed for dental assistants who have already received out-of-state training. The specific need for this resource is covered in detail in the May issue of the CDA Update (page 15).
