COVID-19

The CDTA Council has approved updates to the COVID-19 Return-to-Work Guidelines effective July 27, 2020.
You can access the updated Return-to-Work Guidelines here.
You can access a schedule of changes here.
As a reminder, adherence to the guidelines is MANDATORY. All Dental Technologists and Dental Technicians must continue to follow the guidelines.

Mental Health

The COVID-19 pandemic can have a significant impact on Albertans' mental health.

Resources are available if you need a little extra support, advice on handling stressful situations, or ways to talk to children.

Family violence

If you or someone you know is at risk of family violence, help is available.


On April 30, 2020, Alberta Health announced that as part of Alberta's Relaunch Strategy, all regulated health professionals may return to safe practice subject to guidelines approved by their respective regulatory colleges.

Effective May 14, 2020, Dental Technologists and Dental Technicians are permitted to return to full provision of services subject to these MANDATORY guidelines. Failing to adhere to these guidelines may be considered professional misconduct and may result in disciplinary action under the Health Professions Act. 

Some oral health facilities may be required to remain closed due to shortages of Personal Protective Equipment or recent facility requirement changes.

These guidelines are subject to change, and will be updated, as more information regarding COVID-19 becomes available. Click here for the return-to-work guidelines.
