​​Dentists Coming from Another Province

All Canadian jurisdictions require a completed Certificate of Standing from each regulatory body in each jurisdiction the dentist has ever been registered/licensed.

If you are applying for registration and you are or have ever been registered/licensed for the practice of dentistry or another health profession in another Canadian jurisdiction, you are required to request a Certificate of Standing be completed by those other regulatory bodies and sent directly to CDSBC. The Certificate of Standing must be dated within one month of the date your application is received by CDSBC.

You will find the application forms in the Dentist Registration Requirements and Forms section.

IMPORTANT: If you have ever been or are currently registered/licensed​ in another province or country, please contact that provincial or national regulatory body to request a Certificate of Standing for your CDSBC application. The Certificate must be delivered directly to CDBSC from the licensing/regulating body in a sealed envelope. If the Certificate cannot be sent directly to CDSBC, it must be received by CDSBC in the original sealed envelope. ​

The Certificate is valid for up to 30 days from the date that it was signed. If applicant does not have their registration/certification process completed within the 30 days, a new Certificate may be required.
