B.C. Health Minister Gives Dental College 30 Days to Deliver Transparency Plan

The College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia has 30 days to brush up on its accountability to the public following the release of a performance inquiry report.

Health Minister Adrian Dix said Thursday he accepted the inquiry’s 21 recommendations to ensure the college, which registers, certifies and regulates B.C.’s dentists and dental assistants, acts in the public’s best interests.

“We have almost two dozen recommendations which we expect the college to implement that will improve regulation of dentistry, of dental surgeons in B.C., and to put the public first,” he said.

“This is not just a message for dental surgeons but a message for all the professions and all the colleges.”
