Shortage of Registered Dental Assistants
CDAA
The province of Saskatchewan is experiencing an extreme shortage of Registered Dental Assistants. As of August 20, 2013 there are 66 positions open across the province with 21 positions in Regina, 24 in Saskatoon and 21 in more rural locations. If you hold the NDAEB certificate and have graduated from a CDAC accredited program or have successfully completed the NDAEB Clinical Practice Evaluation and hold current licensure, you will meet our registration criteria. Additionally Dental Assistants registered and licenced in another Canadian jurisdiction are eligible for registration / licensure under the Mutual Recognition Agreement for Dental Assistants based on a letter of standing from your current DARA. Our own graduates can never meet this need with 60 recent graduates already absorbed into the workforce. If you are considering a change of locale, consider Saskatchewan. Please visit our web based Job Board to review available positions: www.sdaa.sk.ca/jobs.html. If you wish more information on the province of Saskatchewan, visit our provincial government website which outlines the benefits of living in Saskatchewan: www.gov.sk.ca/move-to-saskatchewan/.

Dentists raise concerns over latest MSI coverage change
CBC News
Some dentists in Nova Scotia are raising concerns about the province's planned expansion of health coverage for children. Last week the provincial government promised to help pay for basic care for children 17 and under. It's welcome news for low income families and those without private insurance, but provincial coverage doesn't include all services — Dr. Michelle Moller said that's leading to some uncomfortable discussions at the dentist's chair.

10 things to tell your dental marketing company
Modern Dental Marketing
The best dental marketing company can help your practice grow, but they can't do it alone. Why? Because today, people expect a personal touch in marketing — particularly from a private practice, and even more so from a healthcare provider. In the past, a dentist could hang up a sign and patients would book appointments. Yellow Pages ads were popular, once the ADA allowed dental advertising, and they helped many practices keep full schedules. These types of advertising are impersonal, and no longer effective.
