Did You Know?
There are fewer than 2,000 registered dental technologists / technicians in Canada and the profession is facing a critical shortage.  As the demand for dental technology services increases, more regulated professionals are needed.  Unregulated dental laboratory workers and internationally educated dental technology professionals, can help to address the shortage if they become licensed.

What is the Access to Dental Technology Project? 
The project is a multi-year, pan-Canadian project funded by Government of Canada's Foreign Credential Recognition Program that started in December 2017.   The project will:  
  • help internationally trained newcomers join the Canadian workforce faster
  • launch a website with centralized information on the dental technology profession 
  • create pre-arrival self-assessment tools
  • establish fair, consistent and harmonized assessment processes of domestic and internationally educated professionals seeking to be licensed
