Renewing as a different registration category

If you are not planning to practice effective April 1, you have two options: 

  1. renew as non-practising, or 
  2. renew as resigned from register  

As a non-practising denturist, you will not be permitted to practise denturism. You may apply to transfer back to a practising status any time. The transfer process does not require a new criminal record check. You can find the transfer application and requirements on our website online (see “Application for Transfer”). A denturist who holds non-practising status is not required to have active malpractice coverage. 

Note: Denturists may hold non-practising registration indefinitely but must meet the Quality Assurance Program (QAP) requirements to transfer back to practising. Denturists will also need to reactivate professional liability insurance coverage. Certificates/Letters of Standing from all jurisdictions a denturist currently hold/previously held registration(s) in may be required. 

Lapsed Registration 
If you don’t renew, your registration will lapse. If your registration has lapsed and you wish to regain practising status, you must: 

  • meet BCCOHP’s QAP requirements, and 
  • complete and submit an application to return to practice (see details below, based on how long your registration has lapsed). 

If you have questions or require further information, please email

The non-practising registration category is for denturists who can hold a registration as a full denturist registrant or limited  registrant but do not plan to practise for a period of time. Non-practising denturists are not permitted to practise. 
Note: As a denturist, you may hold a non-practising status indefinitely. However, if you want to regain your practising status, you must meet BCCOHP’s quality assurance requirements.

If you are resigning your denturist registration, please send your notice of resignation to
