Reinstatement and Transfers

Reinstatement:

Registrants who previously cancelled their General Registration with the CRDHA may apply for reinstatement in accordance with CRDHA Bylaws.

 

Transfer:

Non-Practicing members on the Non-Regulated Members Register may apply to transfer to the General Registration category of the Regulated Members Register.

 

If you are reinstating or transferring back to the General Register and previously held any advanced restricted activities, you must reapply for those advanced restricted activities. Please see the Advanced Restricted Activities section on the Applicants page. These Advanced Restricted Activities must be approved by the CRDHA before a Registrant can perform them.

Practicing dental hygiene in the Province of Alberta without being registered with the College of Registered Dental Hygienists of Alberta and holding a valid practice permit is a contravention of the Health Professions Act and punishable by fines and/or imprisonment.

If your registration on the CRDHA general register has been cancelled, except under Part 4 - Professional Conduct, of the Health Professions Act (HPA), you may apply for reinstatement in accordance with the HPA and CRDHA Bylaws.

If your registration on the CRDHA Non-Practicing register has been cancelled, you may apply for reinstatement in accordance with CRDHA Bylaws.
