At Howard Healthcare Academy, we offer a California Dental Practice Act (CDPA) course that is mandatory for all licensed dental professionals in the State of California. Here are full details about our CDPA class.

What Is CDPA?

CDPA defines the day-to-day duties of dental assistants and other licensed dental professionals across the State of California. It was created by the Dental Board of California (DBC) and outlines the regulations and rules that licensed dental professionals must follow as part of their legal and ethical responsibilities to patients who are treated in dental offices.

What Will You Learn in Our CDPA Course?

Our two-hour CDPA course outlines the rules and regulations associated with CDPA. Upon successful completion of our CDPA course, you will understand:

• The role of DBC.
• Who serves as mandated reporters of abuse, neglect and violence in a dental office.
• Basic rules and regulations related to prescription medications.
• Ethics associated with dental practice and the law.
• How to become a licensed dental assistant and renew your licensure periodically.

In addition, our CDPA course ensures you can receive certification that will remain valid for two years.

At this time, our CDPA certification class only is available on site at any of our Southern California locations.
