Both are new interactive e-learning products.

CHICAGO, Illinois—The DALE Foundation has launched two new interactive e-learning products: the DANB GC Review Part I and the DANB ICE Practice Test.

The DANB GC Review Part I is an online course that covers important topics and patient scenarios related to general chairside assisting, making it a primer to begin preparing for the DANB General Chairside Assisting exam or as a way to earn 12 CDE credits.

The GC exam is a component exam of DANB’s Certified Dental Assistant exam. The other two components are the Radiation Health and Safety and Infection Control exams. Dental assistants who want to review for DANB’s complete CDA exam can also use the DALE Foundation’s DANB RHS Review, the DANB RHS Practice Test, the DANB ICE Review, and the DANB ICE Practice Test to round out their study plan.

Like the DANB RHS Practice Test, the DANB ICE Practice Test includes 200 sample questions, sample tests with 50 questions each and multiple options for feedback. This interactive online study aid offers multiple ways to prepare to test, and to learn.

Dental assistants can create customized practice tests and bookmark specific questions to review later. The DANB ICE Practice Test works well as a stand-alone study aid or as a companion to the DANB ICE Review.

“The DALE Foundation is excited to offer these new educational products to help dental auxiliaries review for DANB exams or as a way to earn CDE credits,” Executive Director Cindy Durley said. “The DALE Foundation’s educational products are engaging and interactive, which makes the learning process fun.”

The DALE Foundation’s comprehensive e-learning products are developed by subject matter experts. These e-learning products offer an engaging and customized experience. The courses are divided into modules, so dental auxiliaries can complete the sections at their pace. Periodic feedback helps dental auxiliaries check their progress and target the information they need to prepare for DANB exams.

The DALE Foundation’s study aids--including the DANB ICE Practice Test, DANB RHS Practice Test and Glossary of Dental Terms--can be used on mobile devices for on-the-go learning. The study aids also feature online games and customized practice tests.
