Lab fees will cover the cost of standardized disposable supplies and the use of equipment while in the EFDA program. You will be required to purchase your own books though. Students must return school instruments upon the completion of the program. Any lost or broken instruments must be paid for at the students expense.
You will be required to hold current CPR certification, 7 hour Bloodborne Pathogen Certification, Department of Health Dental Assisting Registration and provide proof of immunizations and medical insurance. We encourage applicants to be currently working in a private practice setting or to have three to six months working experience as a dental assistant.
Upon completion of the program, you can apply to take the following tests at your own expense for licensure:
- Western Regional Examination (WREB)
- Washington State Restorative Examination provided by the Dental Assisting National Board (WARE)
Upon completion of the two-quarter course and passing the WREB and WARE examinations, you may request licensure from the Washington State Department of Health. If you haven’t attended an accredited dental assisting program, you must take your Dental Assisting National Board Certification (DANB) test prior to licensure.
