* The Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) consists of three sections: Radiation, Infection Control, and Chairside Assisting. All three sections of the exam must be passed to become a certified dental assistant. If a tester fails a section, only the failed section is retaken. Graduates of the Dental Assistant program are not required to pass the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) to practice as a dental assistant; therefore not all graduates take the exam even though the testing fee is included in the student fees paid to LCC for the Dental Assistant program.
