Dental Anesthesia Assistant National Certification Examination (DAANCE)

November 18th, 2008

Beginning December 3, 2008, the OMAAP certificate of completion course will be sunsetted and the new program going forward will be known as the Dental Anesthesia Assistant National Certification Examination (DAANCE). To ensure that the DAANCE certification examination meets existing professional testing standards, AAOMS follows the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing (1999), as published by the American Educational Research Association, American Psychological Association, and the National Council on Measurement in Education. The Standards are designed to establish criteria for appropriate development, use and interpretation of tests. Registration information will be made available on the Meetings and CE pages of aaoms.org after December 1, 2008. For more information about the transition from OMAAP to DAANCE, please refer to our DAANCE FAQ.
