Affiliated clinical agencies may have a policy that will not allow students convicted
of a felony to perform clinical duties at their agency. If this is the case, the student
will not be allowed to enter the program as clinical experiences would not be made
available to him/her. The Dental Assisting National Board also requires exam candidates
to disclose any felony convictions and the responses will be reviewed on a case-by-case
basis to determine eligibility to sit for the DANB exam. All Dental Assisting Program
applicants must submit a notarized Background Check Statement and complete the PreCheck
Background check as part of the application process.
