Licensure & Approvals

Each Ross Medical Education Center campus and Ross College in Sylvania is licensed by the applicable State in which the school is located.

Some states regulate the duties of Dental Assistants through licensure or registration to take Radiographs. Licensure or registration may require passing a written or practical examination.

Some states also define some dental assisting functions as “expanded functions” and require successful completion of the state administered RDA examination. The Dental Assistant program offered by Ross College and Ross Medical Education Center does not currently address those expanded functions; therefore graduates are not eligible to take the state administered RDA examination to become Registered Dental Assistants.

Currently Ross Medical Education Centers in Saginaw and Bowling Green locations are in “ASHP/ACPE candidate” status. Ross campuses located in Brighton, Charleston, Davison, Fort Wayne, Morgantown, and Niles are ASHP/ACPE accredited.
