Meet the Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary (EFDA)
One of Cooper Moss’s dental assistants – Elizabeth – has taken advantage of the EFDA program at South Puget Sound Community College and has completed the state requirements to become an Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary. Her commitment to quality dentistry and to continued growth within her field ensures that our patients receive the best that modern dentistry has to offer. In addition to her certification as a dental assistant and dental auxiliary, Elizabeth is also certified as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistants which is a nationally-recognized certification through the Dental Assisting National Board.
Elizabeth and our dentists work closely together to ensure the best care for each of our patients. Elizabeth is routinely involved in the completion of composite restorations when one of the dentists determines that utilizing a dental auxiliary will serve the best interests of our patients. To learn more about EFDAs, please see the additional information below the team bios.
