To all oral health professionals in British Columbia:
The Transition Steering Committee for the Oral Health Amalgamation Project is pleased to provide notice that the proposed bylaws for BC’s new oral health regulatory college are now available for review.
The amalgamation partner colleges are the College of Dental Hygienists of BC, the College of Dental Technicians of BC, the College of Dental Surgeons of BC, and the College of Denturists of BC.
The proposed bylaws set out how the new oral health college will be structured and governed, how it will uphold its legal mandate to protect patients and the public, and the regulatory requirements for the 15,000 oral health professionals the new college will regulate.
