BCCOHP serves the public by regulating 16,000 oral health professionals, including certified dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental therapists, dental technicians, dentists and denturists. 

There are three main ways that the BC College of Oral health Professionals protects the public: 1. By ensuring that oral health professionals are able to practise competently. 2. By setting standards for the delivery of safe and patient-centered oral health care. 3. By investigating complaints about oral health professionals.
