Annual Renewal 2017/18

Reinstate Your Registration/Certification Online

The deadline to renew your registration/certification was 1 March 2017.

Dentists and CDAs who have not renewed by 1 March are not permitted to practise until they have reinstated. As the deadline has passed, you are now required to pay an additional reinstatement fee.

Reinstatement completed by 1 May 2017 (within 60 days form the renewal deadline) can be done online by logging into your account, completeing the online form, paying your annual renewal fee as well as the reinstatement fee. The annual renewal and other relevant fees can be found in Schedule F of the CDSBC Bylaws >>

To reinstate after your registration has lapsed for more than 60 days requires completion of a separate reinstatement application process and an increased reinstatement fee. Find out more >>

Your annual renewal is not complete until you have submitted your renewal information and the renewal and reinstatement fees.

  • An up-to-date CRC clearance. Read about the CRC process below >>
  • Your driver's license number, all names that you use or have used, and your place of birth (city + country).

New for 2017/18 Annual Renewal:

  • Changes to the Criminal Record Check Process

    Effective 1 March 2017, CDSBC is changing the Criminal Record Check (CRC) process and making it easier for registrants. Registrants are required to undergo a CRC every five years. CDSBC will now collect one fifth of the CRC fee at annual renewal each year and registrants will be asked to consent to a CRC as part of their online renewal for the year their CRC expires. You will no longer be required to submit your own CRC applications to the College.

    Registrants will continue to be accountable for any follow up requested after the CRC application is submitted. Those who are flagged for a vulnerable sector check will still be required to have their fingerprints taken.

    If your CRC expires prior to 1 March 2017, you are still required to submit your own CRC application for this year.

  • Dental Corporations (Dentist Only)

    Health profession corporations, such as a dental corporations, cannot operate without a permit issued by CDSBC. Information pertaining to the requirements of the corporation permits, as stipulated under Part 11 of the CDSBC Bylaws, has to be tracked by CDSBC.  

    Over the past two years, we have collected dental corporation information in the online annual renewal form to ensure our records are up to date. This year, if you are a shareholder of a dental corporation, you will see the information recorded however you will not be able to change the information in the form. You will see instructions on how to update your dental corporation information.

    If you have changes to make in relation to your current dental corporation permit, or if you have to obtain a new permit, please see the instructions and applicable forms available here >>
