Quality Assurance Program

The practice of dentistry is demanding and constantly evolving. Continuing education and practice enhancement form the foundation of our Quality Assurance program, as they are essential to maintaining the highest standards of professional care.

All dentists with a general or specialty certificate of registration must participate in the College’s QA program and pursue continuing education activities as part of their commitment to the profession and lifelong learning.
