DANB CDA Dental Assisting Student Exam Blueprints

DANB’s exams do not correspond directly to any specific textbook or dental assisting program. Instead, they are based on an analysis of the duties commonly performed in actual dental assisting practice, which is called a content validation study. This study serves as the basis for what DANB calls the exam blueprint. The exam blueprint outlines all of the possible topics on a specific exam.
