REMINDER: Saskatchewan experiencing an extreme shortage of Registered Dental Assistants
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/.
