As part of a settlement agreement, the College of Dental Surgeons of B.C. has apologized to a Victoria dentist over how it handled her complaint into allegations of sexually inappropriate comments made to her by the college’s former registrar.
The college has also apologized for issuing a misleading response to an online review that Rachel Staples posted in 2017 about her complaint, acknowledging the response contradicted the findings of an investigator the college hired to look into it.
“Contrary to what the College suggested, the true fact is that the investigator the College engaged to review this matter found as fact that Mr. [Jerome] Marburg made the inappropriate comments to Dr. Staples,” says the apology, which is dated May 24, 2018 and signed by CDSBC president Don Anderson.
“The College also unreservedly apologizes to Dr. Staples for the way it handled her complaint.”
