Posted November 9, 2018

Updated June 14, 2022

Background

Dr. Ivy Kwok Suen Yu is registered with the College of Dental Surgeons of BC as a general dentist.

Dr. Yu has signed a Memorandum of Agreement and Undertaking (MAU) with the College acknowledging concerns with respect to her orthodontic diagnosis, treatment planning and provision of orthodontic treatment.

Resolution

The MAU directs that Dr. Yu:

  • consent to a limitation on her practice in that she will not provide any orthodontic services for any patient until she:
    • successfully completes a degree or equivalent qualification from a specialty program in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, and
    • obtains certification as a certified specialist in accordance with CDSBC's Bylaws.

This limitation on Dr. Yu's practice will be included on the College's public register.

The Inquiry Committee determined this to be a serious matter under the Health Professions Act (section 39.3).

June 14​, 2022 Update

On May 30, 2022, Dr. Yu entered into a second MAU related to diagnosis and treatment planning, and informed consent as it relates to orthodontic treatment.

Although this is a new and separate agreement (MAU), it has been affixed to Dr. Yu's above notice as it relates to the nature and timeframe of Dr. Yu's conduct.

Dr. Yu has not provided orthodontic treatment since 2018. This matter occurred prior to the 2018 limitation on her practice that she cannot provide any orthodontic services (noted above).

The Inquiry Committee determined this to be a serious matter requiring publication under the Health Professions Act (section 39.3).
