The Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) is the nationally recognized certification agency for dental assistants. Lamar State College Orange has partnered with Pearson VUE to administer the DANB exams. Application forms and study guides are available through DANB's web site at http://www.danb.org.
DANB reviews each application and sends an admission letter to authorized candidates. Eligibility criteria are determined by DANB policies and procedures. The admission letter specifies a 60-day period in which the candidate must take the exam. The exam can then be scheduled via the web at www.pearsonvue.com, or through a call center agent at 1-800-525-2586.
Pricing information and study guides are available by calling 1-800-FOR-DANB or can be ordered on line at www.danb.org.
