Registering as a Denturist

Si vous desirez obtenir les informations du site en français, cliquez ICI.

In Ontario, only individuals with a current Certificate of Registration with the College can practise denturism or use the title “Denturist”.  The CDO’s registration process is governed by Ontario Regulation 833/93 – Registration Regulation.

This registration process is designed to ensure that individuals who receive a Certificate of Registration meet the entry level competencies and requirements that are essential to safe, competent and ethical denturism care for the people of Ontario. 
Individuals who wish to apply for a Certificate of Registration in Ontario must first pass the Qualifying Examination. Once a completed application has been submitted to the College, it is reviewed for completeness.  In instances where the applicant may not meet all of the registration requirements, the application is referred to the Registration Committee for review.  Individuals whose applications have been referred to the Registration Committee will receive notice of the referral.  Once an application has been referred to the Registration Committee it takes approximately 4-6 weeks for the Committee to meet and reach a decision.
