Students interested in becoming a dental assistant should research any dental assistant education program prior to enrolling. The most important inquiry is whether the school is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada.
Please follow the link to the CDAC website to search the name of your program. Select - dental assisting - province and scroll through the program names. Click here to follow the link.
Talk to your family dentist; does she/he hire graduates from the program you are investigating? Do you know any dental assistants that have graduated from that program? How do they feel about their education?
Ask the program about their national board examination results. All programs receive a comprehensive report regarding the examination results of their students.
