Board License Exams
Other states may have their own registered dental assistant exam, in which case, they would not recognize CDA licenses. Please check with the desired state dental assistant board for more information. The American Dental Assistant Association (ADAA), may also provide guidance.

All courses must be taken as part of the program.
