Inventory: legacy college practice resources removed from website for Board consideration

Last updated: May 2024

BCCOHP is currently working to create professional and ethical standards for all regulated oral health professionals. 

All standards and guidance documents for clinical and ethical practice and other practice resources previously ported over to BCCOHP from the legacy oral health colleges upon amalgamation on September 1, 2022, are currently under review by the Professional Standards Working Group on behalf of the Standards and Guidance Committee. Where there are questions of statutory alignment with current Ministry of Health regulations and BCCOHP Bylaws, those documents have not been rescinded but are being removed from BCCOHP’s public website to allow further consideration by the Board 

A list of the removed documents to date is below.
