President’s Message

Warm Greetings CDAA Members!

It is that joyful time of the year again, Dental Assistants Week is coming up! From March 3rd to the 9th, celebrate your recognition with us. Come to the next General Meeting on March 4th, 2019 at the Inglewood Community Hall. Our DA Week Representative has a fancy evening planned, so bring your favourite tea cup and join in the festivities!

The Spring Seminar is also coming up soon on April 13th, 2019. Our Education Chair has worked diligently in dedicating speakers with relatable topics throughout the event to benefit your learning experience. Registration is open to all dental team members. Logon to our website,, for the registration form and itinerary of the day.

Extending a great thanks to the EDAA for the invitation to their Dental Team Conference on February 2nd in Edmonton. The continuing education sessions were very interesting and informative, the conference was very well planned, organized and was held at a beautiful venue with great service. It was a pleasure to attend as President alongside Past-President Debb Kavalo.

Our board members come together, bringing ideas and execute them skillfully to ensure we have structured meetings, educational and enjoyable events. These positions are valued and as mentors, we offer guidance and coaching for these roles as they are passed on to new volunteers. Consider being the next Membership Co-ordinator, Secretary or President-Elect.

You can assist with our future by contacting the CDAA through our website or by contacting me personally at As always it is important to join, maintain your membership, encourage others to become members, share your ideas and perspective.

Respectfully Submitted

Donna Chanthasiry, RDA, CDAA President
