Survey: Factors, Realities, and Experiences of Employment as a Dental Assistant in Canada

Tuesday, March 5, 2019

The Canadian Dental Assistants’ Association (CDAA) and the Canadian Dental Association have partnered to develop a survey that examines the factors, realities and experiences of employment as a dental assistant in Canada.  

All dental assistants in Canada are being invited to participate in the survey. The results will help to inform on the supply of, demand for and the recruitment and retention of dental assistants in Canada.

The survey will also assist CDAA in developing resources and materials and will support the development of partnerships with other organizations that can contribute to addressing the needs of dental assistants in Canada.

The information you provide through the survey will remain confidential. The data will be summarized and no names or identifying information will be used in any publications or presentations.

We recognize that your time is valuable, and we appreciate your participation.

Participation in the survey is completely voluntary, but we hope you see the benefit of participating.

The survey will take under 10 minutes to complete.

We would appreciate it if you could complete the survey before March 30, 2019.
