 e Manitoba Dental Assistants Association has continued to be actively engaged in advocating for the profession of dental assisting in Manitoba.  e MDAA Board was pleased to host a successful CE session on November 12/16 at the Canad Inn with 120 registrants in attendance. Guest presenters were Dr. Robert Kaufmann and Kathy Purves.
Dr. Kaufmann, a practicing endodontist in Winnipeg, obtained his Certi cate of Advanced Graduate Study and Master’s Degree in 1986. His topic of “Endodontic Imaging” examined strategies and techniques for the dental assistant when imaging teeth for optimal diagnosis and endodontic treatment. Kathy Purves spent 17 years in the dental profession as a practicing dental assistant and has been with Germiphene for more than 20 years. Kathy has lectured to dental professionals in Africa, Southeast Asia, South Paci c and Europe. Her presentation on “Sterilization Monitoring Procedures” provided assistants with a review of safe protocols to ensure the safety of the dental team and the public. Both presentations were highly informative and the feedback from the membership was very positive.
 e MDAA will be looking to schedule future CE sessions for 2017 once the AGM has been held and newly elected board members are chosen. Please continue to check the MDAA website for updated CE postings and other information pertinent to you, our valued members.
