Social Media Launch

Posted Date: July 13, 2018

On March 8th, 2018, the College announced its new mission statement at the Pacific Dental Conference "Fulfilling our duty to protect the public through regulatory excellence”.

It has always been the College’s position to ensure public protection; this includes a committment to open and transparent communication with the public and our registrants. To that end, the College has taken the added step to include social media as one of its vital communication tools. 

We invite you to visit and share our Facebook page. We have also created a YouTube channel, where you will have access to all the College’s webinars, more recent AGMs and PDC forums. For registrants, some of these videos can be applied towards CC Credits.

Pacific Dental Conference 2018

Posted Date: March 22, 2018

If you were unable to attend the College's Forum, you can still claim 1.5 Continuing Competency credits by viewing the webinar below and completing the questionnaire here.

CDHBC Forum: During this year’s forum, the College will unveiled its new Mission Statement, Values Statements and Strategic Goals. In addition, the Registrar presented the Quality Assurance Program (QAP) Evaluation Report which was released on Wednesday, March 7th. The Registrar also provided highlights of the newly designed Jurisprudence Education Module (JEM). Other topics covered included an update on the Regulation and Bylaw Proposal, details of the most recent discipline hearing, and other important regulatory topics both inside and outside dental hygiene.

Registrants who attended the Forum may claim hour-for-hour continuing competency (CC) credits. This activity would fall under Content Category F.1 - Ethics & jurisprudence.

PDC Continuing Competency (CC) Credits:


  • Registrants may claim hour-for-hour credit for attending PDC courses related to their professional dental hygiene practice.  

  • Registrants may claim 2 credits for attending the PDC exhibition hall. Please note there is a maximum credit allowance of 12 credits per cycle for attending any dental/dental hygiene related conference exhibition hall. 

  • All learning activities should be recorded within each registrant’s Online Learning Plan. The reflection completed for each learning activity, whether attending the PDC exhibition hall or attending individual PDC courses, should reflect the knowledge gained and application to dental hygiene practice.

PDC Course Coding: The College has once again collaborated with the Pacific Dental Conference (PDC) staff to include a coding system within the PDC Conference Program to assist with identifying links between your learning goals and the PDC sessions. In the PDC program, you will notice that each dental hygiene-related session has been coded with a letter-number code (e.g. D.3.) corresponding to one or more specific CDHBC QAP content categories (e.g. Non-surgical dental hygiene therapy). It is important to note that these codes are suggestions only, and you are required to use your professional judgment when selecting courses and determining which QAP content categories the course addresses.
