Open to Patient partners within BC

Last updated

Our promise is to protect patients and the public – will you step forward to help?

The College of Dental Surgeons of BC (CDSBC) invites British Columbians who are passionate about safe, ethical dental care to join a CDSBC committee.

The regulation of dentistry in BC is shared by members of the public and dental professionals who work side-by-side on our board and committees to protect patients and the public. Together, we are responsible for regulating the practice of 10,000 dentists, dental therapists and certified dental assistants (CDAs) in BC.

Over the past year, CDSBC has completely re-designed our committees to embrace leading regulatory practices and reflect our over-arching commitment to public protection. The changes will increase public representation and make our decision-making more streamlined and effective.

We are currently seeking qualified members of the public to contribute their skills, perspectives and life experiences as CDSBC committee members. Openings for members of the public are available on each of our 10 committees.

Role details

  • ​Term: There will be 1 and 2 year terms to allow for staggering.
  • Meetings and time requirements: This is dependent on the committee and its workload. See the committee terms of reference for an approximate time requirement.
  • Compensation: Members receive compensation in accordance with CDSBC’s Expense Policy​.

PVN has really helped us engage with patient partners to improve health services at Northern Health.  It is more and more becoming the norm to include patients in the design, delivery and evaluation of health services.  PVN education and supports, involving patient partners, have enabled us to develop the capacity to include the patient voice to make care better and achieve better health outcomes.
