The Newfoundland and Labrador Dental Assistants Association is committed to advancing the career of dental assisting through education, legislation and professional activities.
When patients visit a dental office the dental assistant is usually the first and last person they see. Working along side the dentist a dental assistant is a skilled and dedicated member of the dental team that helps ensure the patients visit will be a safe, successful and as pleasurable as possible. Dental assistants educate patients and promote good oral health.
The Newfoundland and Labrador Dental Assistants Association was started in July 1971, by Elizabeth Purchase, Maria Graham, Elizabeth Feehan and Janyce Oliver. Many great Newfoundland and Labrador individuals have been pioneers of the Dental Assisting community, such as Joan Lamswood. We recognise these women daily for making our profession what it is.
