EDDS Corporate Sponsorship

The E.D.D.S. has developed a branch of corporate sponsorship - the Distinguished Partnership program -  to increase
non-dues revenue and to foster stronger relationships with corporate suppliers. Sponsoring companies are designated the level of “distinguished partner" in one of three categories: dental supplier, dental laboratory, and financial institution.
For their high level of support the E.D.D.S. gratefully acknowledges:

Edmonton Dental Assistants Association

The Edmonton Dental Assistants Association has operated a complimentary Employment Registry service since 1968 to help area employers find suitable staff.  Dentists, self-employed Dental Hygienists and Denturists may contact the EDAA and utilize this service as an efficient and effective way to fill staff openings.  Many employers prefer to hire from our registry rather than place a newspaper or online advertisement.  This service will save you time and money as well as guarantee that applicants are current members of the EDAA.

The EDAA has members that are Registered Dental Assistants, Dental Receptionists and Dental Hygienists.  These members are qualified and available to fill a variety of positions in dental and dentally related work environments.
Employers may contact the EDAA by
phone/fax 780-987-2022 or email:

New users will be asked to read, sign and return an Employer Statement of Understanding that outlines EDAA policies in regard to use of our registry.  Once this form is received we will open a file for that employer.  A request form may then be sent to the EDAA anytime the employer has a position to fill.  The form provides us with details of the position and the qualification required to fill that position.  We will post the job on our registry and send the employer our current list of members available and looking for work.  The employer may contact anyone on the list that matches in qualifications and types of position required and ask that individual to send them a resume or attend an interview.  EDAA members that are not on the list we send to the employer are also able to access the job postings and apply directly to the employer if they are interested and have qualifications that match what the employer has requested.

The job market is constantly changing and it is nice to know that a local professional  association for dental auxiliaries provides you with an easy to use service and maximizes your opportunity of finding a suitable candidate quickly.  Contact the EDAA Employment Registry to fill your next staff opening!
