Discipline Hearings

A registrant can only be disciplined by CDSBC or its committees once a formal discipline hearing leading to an adverse finding has taken place*. More information about the College’s complaints and discipline process is available here.

Following a discipline hearing, the Discipline Committee may make a range of orders, including:

  • reprimanding a registrant,
  • suspending or cancelling registration, and
  • imposing other sanctions.

*exception: the Inquiry Committee may suspend a registrant or impose limits or conditions on their practice pending a hearing of the matter if there is an urgent public protection issue under section 35 of the HPA.

Upcoming hearings

All discipline hearings are open to the public; however, space may be limited and observers will be asked to RSVP. Notice of hearings will be published here 2-4 weeks in advance of the hearing.

Discipline Hearing: Dr. Bin Xu

A discipline hearing has been scheduled for 1-9 November 2018 in Vancouver, British Columbia, in relation to conduct and competency concerns of Dr. Bin Xu, who is currently under a voluntary withdrawal from the practice of dentistry in B.C.

A citation has been issued based on investigations by the College into multiple complaints from former patients of Dr. Xu. The citation will be published on this web page two to four weeks prior to the hearing date.
