The Canadian Alliance of Dental Technology Regulators (CADTR) is excited to announce the launch of its Credential Evaluation and Competency Assessment Services. Canadian and international applicants who wish to become registered and licensed to practice dental technology in Canada can start their journey by applying through CADTR’s new online applicant portal!
This is just one part of a range of improvements designed to ensure that applicants to the dental technology profession receive accessible, efficient and consistent service.
- Graduates from dental technology or dental health programs can start the application to have their credentials evaluated and entry-to-practice competencies assessed, requirements for registration with most Dental Technology Regulator’s (DTRs), in one place.
- The entire application process, including payment, can be done online, saving you time and money!
- A new national Dental Technology Entry-to-Practice Assessment (DTETPA), offered in two parts, has replaced the lengthy entry-to-practice exams offered by the different regulators across Canada.
- Part one of the DTETPA is the Knowledge-Based Assessment (KBA) which is computer-based,
- Part two of the DTETPA is an in-person Performance-Based Assessment (PBA) that simulates professional practice, and is offered in at least two provinces across Canada each year.
- Successful completion of the CADTR credential evaluation and the DTETPA will allow you to start your application with a Dental Technology Regulator in Canada to become licensed to practice.
- The Credentialing Application Guide provides step-by-step instructions for completing your application and submitting required documents.
