Benefits of DANB Certification
DANB certification comes with many benefits that can help boost your career.
Widely Recognized – One benefit is that DANB certifications are recognized or required by 39 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Air Force, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. So certification can help you even if you plan to work in another state.
Added Value to Employers – DANB certification is highly valued by employers, and will look great on a resume. This can give you an advantage over other applicants, and add to your value as a candidate. It is no wonder that 96% of certification holders recommend DANB certification to others.
Career Dedication – DANB certificate holders described having a greater sense of professional commitment, higher job satisfaction and viewed Dental Assisting as a serious career rather than just a job. On average, they have been in their current position for more than 8 years and have been in the profession for 18 years, showing excellent employer loyalty and career dedication. Additionally, certificants reported greater pride in their work and increased confidence in their capabilities in the workplace.
A Growing Job Outlook – According to the The United States Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment of Dental Assistants is expected to grow 19% from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. There has never been a better time to get certified for this in demand career.
