Learning Outcomes & Benefits

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to confidently perform four intra-oral procedures referenced in the RCDSO’s Standard of Practice for Level II Dental Assistants: 

  • Place and cement bands, brackets and passive space-maintainers and orthodontic appliances
  • Place attachments for orthodontic purposes in conjunction with clear aligner therapy
  • Remove bands, brackets and passive space-maintainers and orthodontic appliances
  • Take non-alginate conventional impressions for the fabrication of orthodontic appliances
  • Perform other skills as permitted for dental hygienists

*Due to regulatory restrictions, some orthodontic procedures can only be performed by dentists and registered dental hygienists (with an order from a dentist) in practice. In this course, we will review orthodontic procedures that can be performed by Level II Dental assistants under the Standard of Practice for the Performance of Intra-Oral Procedures that are Not Controlled Acts by Preventive Dental Assistants, Level II Dental Assistants and Registered Dental Hygienists and additional skills that are permitted for dental hygienists.
