Dental Therapists

CDSBC began regulating B.C.’s dental therapists in early 2014. These dental professionals provide oral healthcare services to underserved, and often remote, First Nations populations. They may be the primary oral healthcare professional in their community.

Dental therapists in B.C. must be employed by the First Nations Health Authority and may only provide services to First Nations communities under the supervision and direction of a dentist in good standing.
