The Board of the College of Dental Surgeons of BC has appointed Dr. Chris Hacker to the role of Registrar and CEO effective 1 March 2019.

Chris brings more than 35 years of dentistry practice and seven years with the College to this role, both of which contribute to his deep understanding of the complexities of health provision and regulation. He first joined the College as a Complaint Investigator in 2011 and later took on the role of Policy & Practice Advisor. Chris was Deputy Registrar before becoming Acting Registrar in April 2018.
