For all documents that require notarization, the original must be received by the CDSBC office. At this time, we ask that you send via mail rather than delivering in person. For our mailing address, please visit our contact page.
*If the applicant is currently registered/certified to practise dentistry in another Canadian jurisdiction, submission of these documents is not required.
†If confirmation of successful completion is provided to CDSBC by your educational institution or the NDAEB, notarization of these documents is not required during submission.
IMPORTANT: If you have ever been or are currently registered/licensed in another province or country, please contact that provincial or national regulatory body to request a Certificate of Standing or Letter of Standing for your CDSBC application. The Certificate must be delivered directly to CDBSC from the licensing/regulating body in a sealed envelope.
The Certificate is valid for up to 30 days from the date that it was signed. If applicant does not have their registration/certification process completed within the 30 days, a new Certificate will be required. Before requesting your Certificate or Letter of Standing, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org to determine the appropriate timing of this request. This is to ensure your Certificate or Letter of Standing is dated within our 30-day policy.
Once all the required documents are received and your application is ready to be finalized, you will receive an email notification to make your final payment. You will need to log in to your account and pay for the certification fee. View the list of CDA fees on page three of Schedule E.
Once your certification fee has been processed, you will be sent an email from CDSBC within two business days confirming that your status has been changed to active.
You cannot practise until you receive a certification confirmation email.
