Advertising for dental services is
increasing, as are the channels for advertising. The Board approved the revised
Bylaw 12, which outlines the parameters for advertising and promotional
activities for dentists, dental therapists and CDAs. The Ethics Committee has
produced Interpretive Guidelines to accompany the revised bylaw and provide
guidance for registrants.
The deadline for registrants to bring their promotional material into compliance with the revised bylaw is 1 January 2017.
