Welcome to the website of the California Dental Assistants Association (CDAA), the professional association for dental assistants in California. We are the state affiliate of the American Dental Assistants Association (ADAA). CDAA represents all aspects of dental assisting including, but not limited to, unlicensed dental assistants, registered dental assistants, registered dental assistants in extended functions, dental office managers, receptionists, insurance coordinators, dental assisting instructors, and dental sales representatives (former dental assistants). Our goal is to advance and enhance the profession of dental assisting. On this website you can find contact information for local societies, officers, and committee chairs.
Our Government Relations section will keep you up to date on pertinent legislative issues pertaining to dental assisting. Annual Conferences and special events are listed, as well as local society continuing education courses. If you have any questions or comments you can contact me directly firstname.lastname@example.org, or find the appropriate person on the Contact's page. For email transmissions, please list CDAA in the subject line. Someone will get back to you ASAP. We encourage all CDAA members to visit the website routinely for the most current information on "dental assisting" in California. We invite all non-members to review the website and click on the "membership" link to learn more about membership in the ADAA and CDAA. Thank you for visiting the CDAA website.
