The Difference Between CDA & RDA

While CDAs and RDAs are both recognized dental assistants, RDAs have passed state-specific requirements. 

RDA statuses do not automatically transfer from state to state, so if you recently moved to California and want to become a certified RDA here, you simply won’t find a better school to equip you to complete the RDA exam application successfully.
