Registrant Outreach

On January 22nd, 2021 registrants of all four oral health colleges were sent an email regarding a registrant outreach project related to the modernization of BC health regulation, including the amalgamation of the four oral health regulators.  As a first part of this project, small group meetings of respective registrant groups will be held online in February. Led by an independent facilitator, these meetings provide the opportunity for registrants to engage in a discussion about the challenges and opportunities of forming a single regulator for oral health professionals, and the impacts of amalgamation on you as a registrant.  Registrants are asked to thoroughly review this backgrounder to learn more about the modernization initiatives as well as this outreach project.  After reviewing the backgrounder, if registrants would like to express their interest in participating in a small group meeting they are asked to fill out and submit this form.  The form can either be filled in electronically, saved and emailed or printed off, filled out by hand, scanned and then emailed.  If a registrant has any questions related to the outreach project they can contact the College via email at
