Under Alberta's Health Professions Act and Denturists Profession Regulation, registration with the College of Alberta Denturists is mandatory if you meet identified competency requirements and provide professional services directly to the public, manufacture dental appliances, teach the practice of the profession to members or students of the profession, or supervise registered members or students who provide services to the public. Registered members who are authorized by the College may perform restricted activities specified in the Regulation. Only regulated members may call themselves denturists.

What You Need

Registration requires successful completion of: (1) an approved denturism diploma program, (2) an approved post-diploma internship program, and (3) approved practical and theoretical examinations. For official, detailed information about registration requirements, contact the College of Alberta Denturists.

Working in Alberta

Denturists who are registered and in good standing with a regulatory organization elsewhere in Canada may be eligible for registration in Alberta if registered denturists in the two jurisdictions have similar responsibilities and competencies. For more information, see "What if I am already certified in another province or territory?" and the Alberta regulatory authority (below).

The certification information in this profile may change at any time and without notice. Before making any career decisions, we advise you to contact the regulatory organization or visit their website for the most updated information.
