NORTH WEST DENTAL ASSISTING SCHOOL

ACCREDITATION

Because our Dental Assisting program is an accelerated program of less than one year, by law, accreditation is not required. By accumulating employment hours, our graduates are recognized under “Pathway II” with the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB). Many find it’s not necessary to obtain DANB national board testing/recognition because Washington State does not require national testing to become a “Certified Dental Assistant”. Therefore, we have reduced a barrier for entry into oral health-care. Washington State only requires state registration for employment as a “Registered Dental Assistant” which we are equipped to help you with once you are a graduate of Berkshire College, North West Dental Assisting School.
