Events

We aim to reach as many registrants as possible by delivering a workshop or presentation to four locations each year (Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna and Fraser Valley) and visiting other regions on a two- to three-year cycle. 

We look forward to welcoming you at one of our upcoming events.


We’re All Ears - 2017 Listening Sessions

Topics: the decline of public trust, updating the CDSBC Bylaws, and the business of dentistry and corporate structures.

Listening Sessions are your opportunity to speak directly with your peers and the College while providing input on key activities and policy development. They are facilitated by Dr. Chris Hacker, Director of Professional Practice and Deputy Registrar, with board and committee members and senior staff acting as discussion hosts. Listening sessions are free and are not eligible for CE credits.

We thank all those who participated in the 2017 Listening Sessions.

Dental advertising, ratings sites, and negative media coverage may all contribute to patients who are more skeptical and less trusting. How can we, as dentists, maintain our reputation? Dentists are invited to join a trio of experts for a case-based exploration of
professionalism and ethical practice.

 

Learning Objectives

  1. Grasp the relation of the profession to larger society as the basis of public trust in dentistry
  2. Explain concepts of professionalism/dental ethics relevant to daily practice
  3. Identify ethical challenges in a case study and formulate a recommendation for the dentist
  4. Evaluate dentist attitudes (from a survey) towards the relation of the profession to larger society
  5. Reflect on these themes and be able to address ethical challenges in practice

This session is designed for dentists only.
