National Evaluation of Internationally Trained Dentists

November 1, 2010

In September, the Canadian Dental Regulatory Authorities Federation (CDRAF) announced that it will receive almost $800 000 in federal government funding to help establish a national process for the assessment of internationally trained dentists.

The Foreign Credential Recognition Program will provide CDRAF with the funds in an effort to streamline the process currently used to evaluate the competencies of foreign-trained dentists from non-accredited dental schools.

“We are committed to reducing the barriers to the profession and to recognize foreign-trained dentists,” said Dr. Cam Witmer, CDRAF president.
