Medical Career & Technical College’s Dental Assistant program is recognized as an approved program with the American Medical Technologists (AMT) allowing its graduates to sit for National Certification as an RDA (Registered Dental Assistant). The College is accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).
In addition to learning chairside operatory, laboratory, and office skills, students will learn the expanded functions of a dental assistant to become an Expanded Duty Dental Assistant (EDDA).
When a dentist employs any assistant in Kentucky, their name must be reported annually to the Kentucky Dentistry Board and the employee is then considered “registered” on the Registry. This is NOT the same as being credentialed in the field by passing an academic program followed by national certification testing to become a Registered Dental Assistant.
