Dental Therapists Scope of Practice

Dental Therapist Services are outlined in Schedule D1 (PDF, page 120) of the CDSBC Bylaws.

All dental therapists must be employed by the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) and may only provide services in First Nations communities under the supervision and direction of a dentist in good standing with the College. If a dental therapist ends their employment with FHNA, they will automatically cease to be a CDSBC registrant.

CDSBC’s professional and ethical standards and requirements apply to dental therapists. Dental therapists are required to maintain registration with CDSBC and to comply with our quality assurance requirements. They are also subject to CDSBC's complaints and discipline procedures.
