Open Consultations Deadline Date
Standard of Practice: Conflict of Interest September 15, 2017

As a part of its mandate, the College of Denturists of Ontario develops or amends regulations, by-laws, policies, standards and practice guidelines necessary to regulate the profession.  

Routinely, the College consults with stakeholders – the public, members of the profession, other health regulatory Colleges, professional associations and educators – to get valuable feedback.

The College considers stakeholder consultation for issues that:

  • directly relate to patient or public safety
  • are likely to have a significant impact on denturism practice or operations, or
  • relate to a shared scope of practice and/or will have an impact on inter-professional collaboration

The College will ensure sufficient time to receive, assess, and consider stakeholder feedback, and will share it as per the posting guidelines.

Documents that are available for consultation are posted on the College website with clearly specified submission deadlines, generally 60 days. 

The input of stakeholders helps the College to understand the effectiveness and impact of the proposed changes before final approval, and ensure they are being made in the public interest.

Posting Guidelines

To ensure transparency and encourage open dialogue, the College publishes the feedback it receives in accordance with these guidelines:

  1. Names of individuals are not posted; individuals are categorized as Denturists, applicants or members of the public
  2. Names of organizations are posted with their feedback
  3. The College does not edit feedback
  4. The College does not review and is not responsible for the accuracy of content of any feedback or associated references or links that are posted

The College reserves the right to refuse to post feedback, in whole or in part, that:

  • is unrelated to the policy or issue under consultation
  • contains complaints and/or compliments about specific Denturists, or
  • is abusive, obscene, harassing, threatening or potentially defamatory/libellous
