Register for your second dose of COVID 19 Vaccine

Most Dental Technicians, Technician Assistants and lab staff should have received their first shot of the  COVID-19 Vaccination during  Phase 2 of BC’s COVID-19 Immunization Plan in March-April.

To be notified to book your second dose, you need to register at www.getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca as soon as possible. If you have already registered there is no need to register again.

Everyone in BC will be required to register at the above website.
If you have not booked your first dose, please register at the above website and also check with your local health authority as you should be able to book an appointment as part of the priority healthcare workers.

If you have any questions, please let us know.
Thank you.

Palmeri Media Group CE opportunities for DTABC members

We are pleased to confirm that DTABC members in good standing will be granted complimentary membership to the Palmeri 2021 Dental Technology Academy [DTA]. This will allow DTABC members to participate in all the lecture dates [a total of four dates] for a total of 16- one hour lectures including a Q&A. As part of the DTABC investment, members will also be able to select a maximum of 8 courses [one hour each] from the Spectrum Denturist Academy [SDA] lecture calendar and a maximum of 4 courses [4 clinical 1.5 hours lectures] from the Toronto Implant Academy [TIA] lecture calendar.

To summarize, this means that as a DTABC member you have the choice to select a limited amount of courses from the SDA and TIA lecture calendar and attend all the DTA lecture dates free of charge. That's a total of 28 courses.

You will also receive a CE certificate for each lecture you complete.If you are unable to attend some of the courses during their scheduled times and dates, you can view them on demand for a limited time at a later date.
We include below information on each academy. Remember in BC one hour=one CE credit, regardless of the different point systems oultined in each academy.

We really hope you enjoy the array of free courses available this year. If you have any questions please contact Renata-renata@dentaltechniciansofbc.com
