A new partnership between the Northern Inter-Tribal Health Authority (NITHA), Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the University of Saskatchewan (USask) has been awarded $150,000 by Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) to create a model for establishing the only accredited dental therapy program in Canada.

 

Update - November 9th, 2021:

The USask College of Dentistry, along with our partners Sask Polytech School of Health Sciences and the Northern Inter-Tribal Health Authority, continue our work on developing a proposal for the establishment of a Dental Therapy program for Saskatchewan.  We would inform you that despite an earlier communication announcing that the program would begin accepting applications in March 2022 this date has been changed.
