Annual Renewal 2019/20

The deadline for registrants to complete their annual renewal this year is 1 March 2019. For further details about your renewal please see the information below.

It is every registrant's responsibility to renew by the deadline. Renewals are done online by logging into your account, completing the forms and paying your annual fee. The annual renewal and other relevant fees can be found in Schedule F of the CDSBC Bylaws.

Online renewal is now open.

   Login to renew your registration/certification


You will need the following information in order to complete your renewal:

  • The number of hours that you practised in 2018.
  • Your most current contact information (i.e. email address, mailing address, all practice addresses, phone numbers).
  • Your B.C. Driver's License number (if applicable), all names that you use or have used, and your place of birth (city + country). This information is required in order to ensure that CDSBC has the required data needed for processing your Criminal Record Check through the direct upload process (from CDSBC to the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General directly).
  • Dentists who own sedation facilities will need to provide information about the facility.

Changes to online renewal forms

Please note the following will be new to the online annual renewal forms this year:

First Nations and Aboriginal data & Cultural Competency Training Program​

*(This course is not required for renewal of your registration/certification)

Sedation Information (Dentists only)

Dentists will be asked if they provide sedation and/or general anaesthesia to patients, if they are registered to provide sedation and/or general anaesthesia, and to what level they provide sedation.  We will also be collecting information about sedation facilities from the facility owners. This information will help verify the data we have in our records, and will contribute to data which will inform a mapping system that CDSBC will launch next year; the mapping system will include sedation and general anaesthesia providers.

Dental Radiography Designation (Dentists only)​

CDSBC is asking dentists to indicate if you have a staff person, other than a CDA or dental hygienist, who holds the CDSBC radiography designation and is exposing radiographs.

Payment options   

The annual registration fee may be paid:

  • Online by credit card (VISA or Mastercard ONLY).
  • Visa debit cards are not accepted.
  • Online by Interac from your bank account (RBC Royal Bank, TD Canada Trust, BMO Bank of Montreal, and Scotiabank ONLY).
  • By mailing a cheque or money order - payable to CDSBC - along with the Online Renewal Payment Summary page.
  • In person by cash, cheque, money order, Interac, or credit card at the CDSBC office Monday - Friday 8:00 am - 4:30 pm.

Your renewal is not complete until CDSBC has received both payment of your registration fee and your complete renewal information.

What happens if my renewal is not completed by March 2019?

  • Effective 2 March 2019:
       - your registration will lapse and you will not be eligible to practise.
       - your malpractice insurance will no longer be in effect (dentists only).

  • An additional reinstatement fee will be required to renew.
