Please note: For accuracy, we require the survey to be completed by a dentist rather than a member of the dental staff.

On the College’s website, there is a list of dental offices that meet the required safety precautions to perform emergency/urgent treatment. If you wish your office to be added to this list, please be aware of the following mandatory requirements:
  • You accept emergency patients other than your own.
  • If you perform non-aerosol generating procedures, you must have all the necessary PPE, namely:
    • Surgical mask, gloves and eye protection or face shield
  • If you perform aerosol-generating procedures, you must have all the necessary PPE, namely:
    • FIT-TESTED N95 (or Health Canada-approved alternative) masks, gloves, eye protection, face shield and protective gown
  • You must have at least one operatory with floor-to-ceiling walls and a door (or other barrier) that must remain closed during and after such procedures. Temporary walls and doors are permitted, provided they create an area to contain aerosols and are constructed of materials that can withstand repeated cleaning and disinfection.
Being placed on the Emergency List is at the discretion of the College.

Please note: requests will be declined in cases where one of the dentists in the office has a regulatory history with the College that may cause concern on the part of a member of the public or a referring dentist. Examples of a regulatory history include but are not limited to the following:
  • where a dentist at the practice has a discipline history
  • where a dentist at the practice has received an oral caution
  • where a dentist at the practice has a Specified Continuing Education and Remediation Program (SCERP) that is not completed with at least one positive monitoring report
  • where a dentist at the practice has a pending criminal charge or offence finding
To confirm that your office meets the above requirements, please fill out the survey below.
