Taking care of the residents of Edmonton is not just all about ensuring their general health, revving up the city’s economy, and protecting them from the elements of crime. It is also all about taking care of their smiles, their pearly whites, by making sure that a team of dental care experts are always at their service.
Edmonton dentists are engaged in a regulated profession. If you are a dentist and you would like to render your services to the city, you have to get a license first. A dentist’s license in the country can be secured at the satellite offices of the National Dental Examining Board of Canada in the various regions, territories, and provinces. Not all provinces, though, require dentists to be licensed to practice their profession. But just to be sure, if you want to become an Edmonton dentist, secure a license first.
For you to qualify for a dentist’s license both in the city and in the rest of the country, it is important that you finish a dental college degree first. The degree or program that you took must be one that is accredited by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation or the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada. Just in case the program you took is not one that is recognized by these governing bodies on the dental profession, you have to take an eligibility exam from the Association of Canadian Faculties of Dentistry. Along with this is an agreement of understanding that you will be taking a course on dental care that is accredited by the above mentioned governing bodies on the dental profession. Only after you took the qualifying test and finished the accredited program should you be given the opportunity to be issued a dentist’s license.
