“In addition to helping assistants to prepare for DANB's General Chairside Assisting (GC) exam, a component of the Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) exam, the DANB GC Review Part II is a great opportunity for DANB certificants looking for a way to earn continuing education credits at their own pace,” says Executive Director of DANB and the DALE Foundation Cindy Durley, MBA, MEd. “During DARW, we wanted to show our appreciation for dental assistants who value the importance of lifelong learning.”
Expanding on material from the DANB GC Review Part I, the DANB GC Review Part II covers dental assisting functions for dental specialty areas such as endodontics, prosthodontics and oral surgery procedures. Course objectives include understanding the importance of selecting proper materials and instruments when preparing the armamentarium and setting up trays for endodontic, prosthodontic and surgical procedures; identifying common indications and different types of prosthodontics including crowns, fixed bridges, veneers, inlays, onlays, partial dentures and full dentures; preparing for and assisting with fixed and removable prosthodontic procedures; defining steps involved with tooth extractions to assist with this procedure; and understanding how to assist with other oral surgery procedures.
With an estimated 12-hour completion time, the DANB GC Review Part II includes 20 pre-assessment questions and 75 post-course assessment questions. Learners can take the post-course assessment as many times as they wish during the course’s six-month access period. Successful completion of the interactive, online course earns the participant 12 CE credits.
