The College of Dental Surgeons of BC (CDSBC) regulates dentistry in the public interest. Our mandate is to serve and protect the public.
Most certified dental assistants, dental therapists and dentists (“registrants”) are competent, skilled practitioners who work hard to maintain their patients’ confidence; however, there are times when concerns about their behaviour or the dental care they have provided may arise.
Every person has a right to expect a professional standard of care from their CDA, dental therapist or dentist. CDSBC investigates complaints about the conduct or competence of its registrants and becomes involved when there is a problem.
