Governing Council

The governing Council of the College meets three to four times a year to discuss regulatory policy and debate issues that influence the quality of oral health care in Ontario. Council includes twelve dentists elected by licenced dentists in Ontario.

Council includes between nine and 11 members of the public nominated by the provincial government. The public members are not dentists. Their responsibility is to speak for the public. They play a vital part in the College’s work at Council and on committees. The full involvement of public members is central to the College’s desire for inclusiveness and accountability.

Council also includes two dentists appointed by each of the university dental faculties in Ontario – the University of Toronto and Western University in London, Ontario.
