About the Commission

The Commission on Ohio Dental Assistant Certification is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a pathway for dental assistants to achieve credentialing in Ohio.

Members of the commission are currently certified through The Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) or The Commission on Ohio Dental Assistant Certification (CODA) or both. Both state and nationally certified assistants volunteer to work with The Commission on Ohio Dental Assistant Certification.

State and national certification are recognized by the Ohio State Dental Board as a pathway to apply for a Radiology Certificate and meet the requirement to apply to an EFDA, Coronal Polishing or Pit & Fissure Sealant programs in Ohio.
