by | Dentistry in Canada | 0 comments


Welcome to Canadie Dental blogs. Now that you are ready to start your Dental Assistant Licensing journey, lets get started with the 1st step that is the NDAEB Equivalency process, assuming that you are an International graduate.

Unlike NDEB equivalency process, the NDAEB requires you to send the documents directly to their office in Ottawa prior to having an account on the website. Even though this makes it more confusing and seemingly unreliable, they are clear on the instructions and are available on call or by email. So lets look closely at each step!

Step 1: Arranging the Required Documents

Honestly, this is the most time-consuming document and , that is, your evaluation Certificate. There are 2 ways to get it:

Method 1 : NDEB Equivalency Screenshots.

You need to take 3 screenshots from your NDEB profile and print it out. Those are:

    1. Screenshot of NDEB Equivalency approval email,

    1. Screenshot of NDEB Profile,

    1. Screenshot of NDEB Profile Document Approved list.

Refer the images below for the sample of these 3 screenshots:

Method 2 : WES or IQAS Course-By-Course Report. Please note that the WES Equivalency done for your IRCC & PR application is not sufficient here. Therefore, you will have to do an Academic specific Evaluation separately.

Now to be precise, here is the list of the other 6 Required documents:

    1. Credential Assessment Report or NDEB Screenshots,

    1. Bank draft of $320,

    1. Completed Course Work Report,

    1. A signed Consent for Personal Information Form,

    1. Notarised Degree Certificate,

    1. Notarised Transcript.

Now here’s how to find the above mentioned documents:

    1. To download the course report, you must visit the NDAEB website, hover to “Document Library” on the top right corner, then find “Course Work Report”. Or click here to get there. Here is a quick tip : The course report is to check if you have learned the required syllabus according to the Canadian standard of education. So, while filling out the Course Work Report, make sure to tick everything in the curriculum in order to be eligible for the license. If your International degree had not covered the enlisted curriculum, you may not be eligible to apply for the NDAEB Licensure.

    1. Now, as for the Consent for Personal Information form, this can be found at the end of the course work report.

Step 2: Notarisation

As a part of the NDEB equivalency process, it is essential to notarize two important documents: your Degree Certificate and Transcript. This step ensures the authenticity and validity of your educational qualifications for the application.

These have to be notarised only inside Canada by any one of the below-mentioned:

    • Commissioner of oaths,

    • Notary public, or

    • Lawyer
