Program Description

Program Description

This program includes 13 theory and three clinical courses. Theory courses are provided through Moodle (e-Learning platform) and supplemented by textbook readings and a variety of references. The program is offered as independent study with instructor/tutor supports via email or telephone, with assignments and feedback delivered by email.

The recommended order of course completion is designed to build on the student's knowledge as they progress through the material. The courses are self-paced and developed with in-office activities that enhance the learning experience. As a distance student you also need the ability to work independently and be focused. Self-motivation and task orientation will assist in success in the program.

Each course in the program has been designed to be completed within 4 months. Based on the order of courses, the estimated completion time for this program is approximately 2.5 years (must be completed within 5 years). All students must be employed or volunteer as clinical dental assistants in a general practice for a minimum of two days per week. Successful completion of theory courses are followed by clinical sessions of varying lengths. These clinical sessions provide for calibrated evaluation of the provincial CDA competencies.


Opportunities are now available for individuals currently employed in the certified dental assisting profession to demonstrate their acquired knowledge. After being accepted into the distance delivery CDA program (DADDP), an individual may apply to challenge a course. This is done by successfully passing a comprehensive examination.
