CDAA Pledge

“I pledge to lend dignity and value to the practice of dentistry by upholding the rights of the patient, the practitioner, and my fellow dental assistants. I will strive to continue my pursuit of high personal and professional standards in my chosen career.”

From The Office Of The President Wendy Wilson, RDA

As you have all heard, CADA has advised all Alberta RDAs that they will no longer offer PLI as part of your license annual fees. They are making this change to comply with Bill 46; the Health Statutes Amendment Act 2020. They will be discontinuing the policy as of November 30, 2022. Each dental assistant will need to obtain and maintain their own PLI coverage. They must have PLI coverage at all times when they have a valid Practice permit and their coverage must meet their requirements. Don’t you worry! Our members will be taken care of! The AADA has ensured us that AB RDA’s will have access for 2023 to the same PLI low group rate policy and coverage as they have had over the past years.  The AADA will provide more information and details to us in July 2022. You will have first knowledge of the plan rates and it will be provided through membership with the CDAA and Canadian Associations. You will have plenty of time to get your membership and PLI coverage in time to submit to CADA for your license this coming renewal season. Don’t make the insurance company richer by seeking out individual PLI policies, Support your Associations!
