Focus on patient safety: 2020/21 annual report

As a health regulator, patient safety has always been at the heart of our work. This took on new meaning as we regulated through the COVID-19 pandemic. The certified dental assistants, dental therapists and dentists we regulate demonstrated that they could adapt and respond to changing public health expectations; it was our priority to provide the guidance to support them to deliver safe oral health care to British Columbians.
