The Dugoni School of Dentistry launched its Registered Dental Assistant in Extended Functions (RDAEF) program in June 2011. The next session of the nine-month program will begin on August 10, 2019. Directed by Dr. Molly P. Newlon '82, this program will satisfy the California Dental Board's requirements for new and existing RDAEFs who wish to expand their licensure in preparation for earning certification in the new extended functions.

“I was an RDA for 18 years and this program has greatly enhanced my career. I learned new skills and gained confidence from the supportive professors at the Dugoni School. Now as an RDAEF, I have a larger role in providing the best care for our patients and the response has been extremely positive from both the patients and dentists in our practice.”
