PATHWAY to RDA Program 


Tax Deductible

Doctors &

Attention Doctors! We want to work with you to advance the skills of your staff. Our Pathway to RDA Program offers a clear and easy pathway that incorporates our approved mandatory courses by the California Dental Board (RP-5888) along with in-office training to achieve Registered Dental Assistant certification in as little as 15 months. We have created a reimbursement program that is a win-win situation for you and your staff. Doctors pay California Dental Educators for the program, staff repays the doctor monthly, and the doctor decides if they would like to reimburse staff for educational training. This can be a wonderful tax-deductible* program for doctors (please consult with your CPA) while continuing to establish an additional benefit for your staff. Studies show that when employers invest in education for staff, employees tend to continue employment longer. This program is also available to individuals looking to start a career in the dental field and current dental assistants (DA's) that would like to earn their RDA without the sponsorship of a participating doctor.  To learn more about this program, our reimbursement option, or how to take advantage of this tax-deductible write-off*, don't hesitate to contact us at or (916) 287-3222. 

* This program can be used as a tax-deductible write-off for doctors who pay in full to sponsor their employees' education. Please consult your CPA for more details.
