EFDA Training Programs

Each EFDA program has individual requirements. Most require that applicants show proof of DANB CDA or OHIO CDA certification, or Ohio DH licensure and may request 2 years of office experience. Some EFDA programs are part of the dental hygiene curriculum. Recently some foreign trained dentists, who are waiting for their Ohio license, have been accepted into the EFDA training programs.
