Make sure you have a full, new catalog on hand for 2006 and take advantage of ADAA’s many new and revised courses. The catalog was included in the November/December 2005 Dental Assistant Journal, but if you’d like a separate copy or a copy for the office or a friend, e-mail srobles@ or fax a request to (312) 541-1496.

Take look at the new and revised courses presented here and note that the package we put together to prepare for the national examination is still a great bargain in what’s shaping up to be a great year.

Very Important. All of our courses are approved for CE credits by the Dental Assisting National Board and most state agencies requiring dental assisting education.
