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 or Letter of Standing for your CDSBC application. The Certificate must be delivered directly to CDBSC from the licensing/regulating body in a 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 will be required.
