The College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia registers, certifies and regulates dentists and certified dental assistants (CDAs) in the public interest.
The College of Dental Surgeons of BC assures British Columbians of professional standards of oral health care, ethics and competence by regulating dentistry in a fair and reasonable manner.
We fulfill our mission statement by setting requirements to practice; establishing, monitoring and enforcing standards of conduct and care; and, where necessary, disciplining registrants; as well as monitoring the continuing education of 3,400 dentists and 6,400 CDAs in B.C.
Our regulatory mandate as a self-governing profession stems from theHealth Professions Act and the Bylaws made under the Act.
The College of Dental Surgeons of BC will be the leading health care regulatory body, promoting optimal oral health care for British Columbians through excellence in dentistry and regulation based on principles of fairness, reasonableness and justice.
Please note that the College is a regulatory body and not a professional association. Member services, focused on representing the professional interests of dentists and CDAs, are provided by the BC Dental Association and the Certified Dental Assistants of BC respectively.
