• ensure that the values underpinning the Constitution are embraced and that the rule of law is upheld;
• ensure that dental technology services are accessible by introducing the practice of clinical dental technology;
• regulate the dental technology profession;
• regulate the import and export manufacturing, sale or distribution of goods or dental technology specific equipment required, used, manufactured and repaired for use in the practice of dental technology and to regulate persons possessing, trading in, exporting, importing or carrying of unmounted artificial teeth or any dental or oral prosthesis or part or component thereof;
• repeal the South African Dental Technicians Act, 1979;
