Deadline for dental exams

Dental assistants are reminded to diarise the dates for the board examination for those registered under the “grandfather clause”.

The 2015 board examination for student dental assistants registered under the grandfather clause – based on years of experience – will be conducted on 15 May 2015 and not in August 2015. The board examination will be phased out into 2016 (last examination will be conducted in 2016) and student dental assistants who have not sat for the board examination by 2016 will be required to enrol for a formal course in dental assistance at an accredited education institution.
