Publication Notice: Dr. Steven Krieger

Dr. Steven Krieger is a general dentist who practised in Surrey until he voluntarily withdrew in November 2016 during the course of a CDSBC investigation. A discipline hearing had been scheduled but was cancelled when Dr. Krieger made admissions and proposed a resolution. The Inquiry Committee accepted Dr. Krieger’s proposal and ordered a reprimand, a fine, a minimum one-year withdrawal from practice, and a multi-step remediation program and examination process to be successfully completed if he intends to return to practice. Once the remediation and exam process is completed, he may return to practice subject to limits and conditions.
