EFDA Clinical Review – May 18 & May 20, 2016

This course is designed to prepare the RDH or CDA for the EFDA certification examination administered by the Commission on Dental Testing in Ohio.  The course involves laboratory/clinical review only.  (A didactic review session may be offered upon request.)

When registering for this course, participants will have the option to select one or both days.

--Registering for both days meets the remediation requirement for auxiliaries who have not passed the certifying exam after two attempts.

--The one-day option is available to individuals who are not required to meet a remediation requirement to take the certifying exam.

Both days will include a "mock board" experience, simulating the testing experience.
