What To Know Before You Graduate from Dental Assistant School
Does Wisconsin Require a Dental Assistants to Be Certified?
State regulations vary on certification. Some states require dental assistants to be certified and others do not have any formal educational requirements. While Wisconsin does not require Dental Assistants to be certified, the right training can help your career in more ways than one.
Having proper training from trusted professionals in the dentistry industry is often a factor in incentive salary raises. Apart from adding to your education, qualification and skillset, dental assistant training from WDAS earns you a higher level of recognition. A Wisconsin dental assistant school certificate of completion shows employers you’re willing to go above and beyond what’s required to becoming a dental assistant. Your hard work to learn and train as a dental assistant is an invaluable asset to employers. When applying for a job, trained dental assistants exude more confidence, pride and knowledge. Additionally, trained dental assistants tend to demonstrate career satisfaction with a lower job turnover rate.
If becoming a certified dental assistant is of interest, graduates can attain their certification through the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB), as either a National Entry Level Dental Assistant (NELDA) or Certified Dental Assistant (CDA). The first step to your DANB certification is to submit an application and pay the fee. Once your application has been accepted, you have a 60 day window to schedule and take the required exams. Whether you choose to become NELDA or CDA certified, both are great options for an excellent step in your career.
A certification oftentimes allows dental assistants to perform more advanced duties, and according to the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) full-time DANB-certified dental assistants can earn more per hour than non-certified dental assistants and often receive other employment benefits.
