The CDSA – A Mission of Public Protection

The College of Dental Surgeons of Alberta (CDSA) registers Alberta’s dentists and ensures that the dental health of Albertans is advanced through safe, available, quality and ethical dental services.

Public Protection is managed through three key aspects of the CDSA’s functions:

  • Registering dentists and enforcing standards for registration and continuing competence
  • Establishing a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice for dentists in Alberta
  • Acting on concerns and complaints about dentists in Alberta
