(updated 8-20-2014)

You MUST complete an ADA Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) approved program to take the Registered Dental Assistant "R.D.A." Exam in Michigan. If you do not have a R.D.A. license in Michigan, you CAN NOT perform R.D.A. functions.

You MUST complete an ADA Commission on Dental Accreditation approved (or substantially similar) class to expose X-rays in Michigan. It is the LAW! Make sure you have proof of your training available in your dental office!
