Grads and faculty should be filled with great pride and a sense of accomplishment whenever a class achieves 100% pass rate on the NDAEB exams.

CDI College has produced a brand new video that celebrates the continued success rate of graduates from the Dental Assisting program at the college’s campuses in Burnaby and Surrey, BC. Incorporating time lapse footage, the video focuses on an artist sketching scenes to illustrate the advantage CDI College dental grads have as they prepare to enter the workforce.

“The passing rates say a lot about the graduates and the Dental Assisting programs at both campuses,” says Larry Heinzlmeir, Vice President of Marketing for CDI College. “Grads and faculty should be filled with great pride and a sense of accomplishment whenever a class achieves 100% pass rate on the NDAEB exams.”

Dental Assisting program graduates from the Burnaby and Surrey campuses earned a 100% passing rate on the NDAEB exam in 2011. They also beat the national average for first-time exam writers, with the Burnaby class beating the average score by eight percent.

The NDAEB exams ensure that candidates meet the national standards in knowledge and skill required by provincial and territorial regulatory authorities for recognition as dental assistants. Dental grads from CDI College have consistently obtained between 97-100% pass rates on the exam since the program’s inception in 2007. Success on the exam is the first step for grads to obtain their Certified Dental Assistant license in BC.

CDI College’s Dental Assisting program is the only private dental assisting program in BC to be accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada (CDAC). Graduates are only required to write the theory exam needed for licensing.

Along with celebrating graduate success, the video, titled Why CDI College Dental Assisting Grads Do So Well, also illustrates why CDI College is an ideal choice for those considering a career in dental assisting, including cutting edge technology and industry-experienced instructors.
