About This Site
DENTASA is a voluntary association and advocacy group to promote the interests and needs of the dental technology industry.
We hope to bring you the political news, activities and legislation affecting dental technology as well as DENTASA matters and events.
DENTASA is an association for registered dental technicians to join, where relevant matters affecting the industry can be discussed and a common standpoint can be achieved and advocated for by the association to the relevant regulatory body.
The stronger the association is in membership, the better DENTASA can work towards advancing the industry to a level where the public can respect and appreciate the work of dental technologists.
Auto opt-out system for SMS alerts.
When someone replies with an opt-out message (STOP, OPT-OUT or similar opt out message), the SMS gateway automatically adds their number to a blacklist that is linked to the DENTASA account.
Once a number has been added to this blacklist, the gateway will not send any further messages to that number, if the message originates from the DENTASA account.
If you want to have your number removed from the blacklist please contact WinSMS on 0861 WINSMS (0861 94 67 67) during office hours Mon-Fri 08:30-17:00.
Employment of Students
If there are any laboratories that are interested in employing students please contact the DENTASA office on (012) 460 1155.
We will compile a list which will be made available to the different Universities in the different provinces. Your assistance will be highly appreciated!
How does DENTASA help you to get CPD credits?
From 2012 you can get at least 27 credits just for being a member, attending the AGM and branch meetings and completing the SADTJ questionnaires!
We urge all Technicians that are aware of this illegal practice to report it to DENTASA head office.
DENTASA will then report this unscrupulous practice to the relevant authorities. The laboratory will remain anonymous.
