Regulation professional activities that may be engaged in by persons other than dentists

On September 28, 2016, the draft Regulation respecting the professional activities that may be engaged in by persons other than dentists under the Professional Code was published in the Gazette officielle du Québec for comment.

The draft Regulation allows persons other than dentists to engage in the professional activities that may be engaged in by members of the Ordre des dentistes du Québec. Such persons are limited to those who:

(1) are enrolled in a program of studies in dentistry leading to a diploma giving access to the permit of the Order;

(2) are enrolled in a host or exchange program approved or entered into by the educational institution that issues a diploma giving access to the permit or the specialist’s certificate of the Order;

(3) have completed a program of studies in dentistry leading to a diploma giving access to the permit of the Order;

(4) must complete a training period for the recognition of an equivalence under the Regulation respecting the standards for equivalence of diplomas and training for the issue of a permit or a specialist’s certificate by the Ordre des dentistes du Québec

A person referred to in paragraphs 1, 2 and 4 engage in the activities under the supervision of a dentist.

We are reviewing the draft regulation and will provide an update if there are any impacts.
