Continuing Education

Continuing Education (CE) is an educational system which helps keep a dental assistant’s skills current, encourages professional growth, and increases value to employers and patients alike.

The MDAA Office is located on the original lands of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.

We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we dedicate ourselves to move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.


The resources provide helpful information on:

  • respectful communication in the workplace
  • legal rights and related matters
  • physical well-being in the workplace (physical activity and healthy nutrition)
  • mental health and well-being in the workplace
  • strategies on how to create a healthier workplace
  • workplace safety and injury prevention

This initiative was made possible by the collaborative efforts of members of the Healthy Workplace Working Group, which consists of representatives from CDA, CDAA and CDHA.
