Toronto, ON - “Choosing a qualified dentist is an important first step when arriving in Canada,” said Dr. Lynn Tomkins, President of the Ontario Dental Association. “As a new patient you should be aware that only a regulated dentist has the training and education to provide a comprehensive examination, communicate the diagnosis to you, the patient, and discuss a range of treatment options with you.”
Dentists in Ontario are regulated by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO). Check the RCDSO website at www.rcdso.org to see if your dentist is regulated.
“Going to a regulated dentist will ensure that you are receiving the highest level of care,” said Dr. Tomkins. “We want to help all patients and be your partners in oral health care.”
