Dental assistant question..?
No Experience Necessary
Question by Just me: Dental assistant question..?
I am just finishing my certification to become a dental assistant, what is the difference between a CDA and a RDA? Also, I know you have to have a license to be able to take X-rays, how would I go about doing this and how long does it usually take?
Thanks so much.

hello, i just finished about 12 weeks ago as well.
in most practices you will need an x-ray license to work.
if your class didnt offer it you will need to go through a radiation safety and x-ray program.
just look up the city and state colleges near where you live and they usually offer them.
also check out the comda website the offered places are there.
a CDA is a certified dental assistant and an RDA is a registered dental assistant.
CDAs are limited in the duties they can perform and RDAs hardly have a limit and get payed more.
but again, all of your queestions are more can be answered on the comda site.
i hope i helped :]
