Hybrid Expanded Duty Dental Assistant (EDDA)

The Expanded Duty Dental Assistant (EDDA) course focuses on the ethical, professional and clinical concepts as they relate to the dental assistant, dental procedures and the dental office.

The course is 4 weeks of didactic, online learning and 2 days of on-site clinical hands-on labs totaling 27 hours upon completion. Students are expected to be in the ULM Dental Hygiene Clinic during the final weekend of the course for the clinical portion.
