Background Check

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.
