Their work is still performed under the direct supervision of a licensed dentist. Some of their other duties include placement and shaping of amalgam, and other restorative products. To practice as an EFDA in South Carolina, one must graduate from a Commission of Dental Accreditation accredited program, or complete two years of continuous full-time employment as a chairside dental assistant.
