DEN 300, 310 & 320: Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

Salina Area Technical College’s Expanded Function Dental Auxiliary (EFDA) is designed to provide continuing education for non-certified Dental Assistants, with a minimum of 2 years of on-the-job experience.  Upon successful completion of the courses, the dental assistant will receive an EFDA Certificate of Completion and is eligible to sit for the Dental Assistant National Board (DANB) exam to become a Certified Restorative Functions Dental Assistant (CRFDA).  Those who are currently certified as a CDA through DANB or have completed a CODA accredited dental assisting program have the opportunity to also sit for the Certified Preventative Functions Dental Assistant (CPFDA).  The cost of the DANB examination is not included in your course fees.

The course is designed to provide education and clinical experience for each section of the DANB exams over a 12-week period. The 12 weeks are split into 3 sections.  The first two sections will be fully online, whereas the final section will be hands-on clinical experience at the SATC campus as listed:
