What Does Our RDA Practical Course Offer?

The Dental Board of California administers the RDA Practical exam, which tests a student’s knowledge of numerous RDA techniques. During our RDA exam prep, we’ll teach you about many RDA topics, including:

  1. Temporary Crown Fabrication

As an RDA, you must be able to fabricate an appropriate temporary crown on tooth number 8 that replicates proximal contact and proper occlusion but does not extend beyond the margin of the crown preparation. Our course will teach you how to perform temporary crown fabrication, and we’ll even provide the typodont, prepared tooth and other materials.

  1. Temporary Crown Cementation

Learn how to complete cementation of a temporary crown on tooth number 8 as part of our RDA practical course. Our expert instructors will teach you the ins and outs of temporary crown cementation and ensure you can perform this task quickly and efficiently at any time.

  1. Temporary Restoration Placement

Perform a temporary restoration on tooth number 19 or tooth number 30 with ease thanks to our RDA exam practice. Our course will teach you about temporary restoration placement, guaranteeing you’ll know how to administer a smooth, sealed temporary restoration and recreate the occlusal anatomy and proximal contact areas of the natural tooth/teeth.

Our RDA Practical course lasts approximately four hours and includes a two-hour hands-on lab and mock RDA practical exam. In addition, our students boast a 90 percent RDA practical passing rate after successful completion of our course.
