You asked, we listened, and created a solution.

Dental assistant program faculties, students, and practicing assistants wanted an efficient exam prep solution. Here are their comments and the solutions we came up with.

Some other courses are expensive.
Lower pricing, ALL-INCLUSIVE solution (study notes + quizzes + mock exam).
I need to save time because I have a second job.
Study on your phone or computer, on the go.
The book is too overwhelming.
Straight to the point notes with keywords. Everything is focused on what you need.
I hate it when the explanations don’t provide enough information.
Explanations that are comprehensive. Learn more with each question.
I hate it when the explanations don’t provide enough information.
Practice like the real computer test. Mock exams for DANB’s RHS® exam, ICE® exam, GC, AMP, Topical Anesthesia, Topical Fluoride, Coronal Polishing, and Sealant exams.

SmarterDA is an effective ALL-INCLUSIVE solution if you are preparing for the dental assisting board exams. It is NEW, but that’s a good thing because we are dedicated to personally help you through the process.

Before the website even launched, hundreds of students had signed up for the waitlist. This is a sign that a new all-inclusive solution was needed.

SmarterDA’s founders have another successful online test prep solution - StudentRDH (Dental Hygiene Exams Prep). They took StudentRDH’s best practices and customized a solution for the dental assistant exams.

Now, happy studying! We wish you #SuccessandNothingLess
