Dental Assistant Certification

I n Canada, while not all dental assisting programs are accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada (CDAC), it is important to ensure that you choose a school whose graduates are eligible to write the National Dental Assistant Examining Board (NDAEB) exam.  

Most provinces require dental assistants to be licensed and in every province except Quebec, Dental Assistants must have a certificate from the NDAEB.   In British Columbia for example, graduating from a regulated dental assistant course prepares you, as a professional, to apply for the Certified Dental Assistant registration license with the College of Dental Surgeons of BC. 

In the United States, requirements by state vary.  Some states require dental assistants to be licensed or registered, and pass a written or practical exam.  Also depending on whether the dental assistant takes x-rays, they may be required to register with their state dental board.
