As a self-regulated profession, the Saskatchewan Dental Assistants Association has the responsibility and authority to investigate any complaints that are lodged relative to Registered Dental Assistants. The complaint must be in writing and signed. The dental assistant is advised of the complaint and asked to respond. Once the necessary documentation is acquired, the complaint is referred to a Professional Conduct Committee who interview the complainant, the dental assistant and other individuals as required. If there is sufficient evidence to warrant a hearing, the Discipline Committee is requested to convene a hearing. Rulings of the committee will be posted in accordance with the SDAA Regulatory Bylaws.
