Course Overview

In the state of California, everyone that works in a dental office, is required to be CPR Certified. Additionally, if you are applying to become a Registered Dental Assistant, you are required to complete and show proof of completion of a basic life support course offered by an instructor approved by the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association.

At OC Dental Academy, our CPR for the Healthcare Provider course meet all necessary requirements.

The content below is taking from “The California Dental Board’s” website, stating the requirements to become a Registered Dental Assistant.

Registered Dental Assistant Applicants

Reciprocity is not offered to practice as a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) in California. All persons wishing to perform the functions of a RDA in California must complete the licensure process described below.

APPLICATION AND EXAMINATION REQUIREMENTS

Pursuant to Business and Professions Code section 30(c) a licensing board may not process any application for an original license unless the candidate or licensee provides its federal employer identification number or social security number where requested on the application.

To qualify for RDA examinations, candidates must:
  • Graduate from a Board-approved RDA educational program; or
  • Complete at least 15 months (1,280 hours) of satisfactory work experience as a dental assistant with a dentist licensed in one of the states in the United States; or
  • Complete a California Department of Education-approved 4-month educational program and 11 months of work experience with a dentist(s) licensed in one of the states of the United States.
  • Complete Board-approved courses in coronal polishing and radiation safety.
  • Complete and show proof of completion of a Board-approved course in the Dental Practice Act completed within five (5) years of application.
  • Complete and show proof of completion of an eight (8)-hour Board-approved course in infection control completed within five (5) years of application.
  • Complete and show proof of completion of a basic life support course offered by an instructor approved by the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association.
  • Submit fingerprint clearances from both the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). This process can take 60 days or more. If a candidate has a criminal history, the arrest report and court records must be obtained and investigated before a decision is made to issue or deny the license.
