THE NDAEB EXAM
In order to practice as a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) in BC, graduates from an approved dental assisting program must seek certification from the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia (CDSBC). CDSBC is the regulatory body of CDAs in BC. The Dental Assisting Program at Pacific Health Institute (PHI) is approved by CDSBC and for graduates of this program, along with a criminal record check, both the National Dental Assisting Examining Board (NDAEB) Written Exam and Clinical Practice Evaluation (CPE) must be successfully completed. Graduates from PHI’s program will be eligible candidates for both of these NDAEB exams and preparation for them will be included in the curriculum along with the preparation of all the legal duties that will be assigned to them as CDAs.
