Welcome to the Citrus RDA Program!
I am pleased that you are inquiring about a career in dental assisting! Dental Assisting is an exciting field that offers many options as well as many opportunities for advancement within dentistry. This program can provide you with a great career or a solid foundation upon which to build future goals.
The faculty of the RDA Program is committed to the training of students who will become an educated and professional member of the dental health team. As part of the dental health team, it is our responsibility as dental assistants to develop our skills to their fullest potential so that patients receive the best possible care.
Our program here at Citrus has an excellent reputation and provides a quality, affordable education. While the curriculum is at times challenging for students, they find that the faculty will provide the support and help needed to succeed if they are committed to their learning.
One of the things graduates tell us regularly is how much they learn while in this program - not only about dentistry but about themselves - and how much they grow as a result of their education here. I am confident that it can be the same for you as well.
I hope that you become a part of our Registered Dental Assisting Program here at Citrus College and look forward to spending time with you as together we explore what dentistry holds for you.
