New Mapping Tool Makes Locating Sedation/GA Facilities Easier

Copy of Sedation Map.png

We are pleased to announce that a searchable map of CDSBC-certified facilities offering deep sedation and general anaesthesia (GA) is now available on the CDSBC website.

The map will be a valuable tool for both dental patients and CDSBC registrants in B.C. by:

  • Connecting dental patients with the deep sedation and general anaesthesia services they need, in the location nearest to them
  • Enhancing dentists’ ability to make location-appropriate referrals for their patients
  • Allowing patients to easily verify that deep sedation and GA facilities are CDSBC-certified
  • Providing a searchable database of CDSBC-certified facilities (can search according to the level of sedation provided, desired geographic location, or both.)

The map interfaces with Google Maps, making it easy to locate a facility.

Please note that the map does not work on Internet Explorer.
