Dr. Vincent Wally James Senini

Surrey, BC

Updated January 27, 2023: this hearing has been adjourned and a new date will follow.

The Inquiry Committee of the BC College of Oral Health Professionals (BCCOHP) has issued a citation (notice of disciplinary hearing) to inquire into the conduct and competence of Dr. Vincent Wally James Senini. Dr. Senini holds registration with BCCOHP as a dentist in the specialty of Periodontics.  

As noted in the citation*:   

  • Eleven individuals have submitted complaints against Dr. Senini. The complaints raise numerous issues, including access to records, billing practice, diagnosis and treatment planning, infection control, informed consent, ethics, and communications and patient relations.   
  • Dr. Senini has failed to respond to the College’s inquiries and requests for information in a substantive and timely manner.  

The direction of the citation resulted from Dr. Senini’s failure to respond to the complaint investigators despite multiple attempts. Registrants have a duty to respond to the College in a reasonably timely and substantive manner and to cooperate with complaint investigations; failure to do so may constitute professional misconduct or unprofessional conduct under section 26 of the Health Professions Act (the Act).  

The discipline hearing will be conducted by a panel of the Discipline Committee under section 39 of the Act, and is open to the public. 

The hearing was originally scheduled for Monday, January 30, 2023 by video conference (Microsoft Teams). It has been adjourned and a new date will be posted here when it is available.

Please note that disciplinary hearings will not proceed if they are resolved in advance of the scheduled hearing date.

*The disciplinary citation will be available here after it is amended to reflect the new hearing date.

The bylaws of the BC College of Oral Health Professionals require public notice of citations issued under section 37 (1) of the Health Professions Act.
