Quality Assurance

CDSBC's Quality Assurance (QA) Program helps ensure the public is well-served by competent oral healthcare professionals.

Certified dental assistants, dental therapists, and dentists are required to take mandatory continuing education courses and fulfill continuous practice requirements.

Current QA Program

CDSBC's QA program has two main components:

  • continuing education (number of credits required to hold practising certification/registration).
  • continuous practice (number of practice hours required to hold practising certification/registration).

For more information about continuing education and continuous practice, click the links below.
