The College of Denturists of Ontario falls under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The OFC does not assess credentials, handle complaints or intervene in particular cases. Our mandate is one of systemic change. Please contact the CDO for further information about your ability to practise as a denturist in Ontario.

Action

The College of Denturists of Ontario is no longer under government-appointed supervision. In preparation for the return to self-governance, the OFC worked closely with the supervisor to improve the CDO's understanding of fair-access law and how the law applies to its registration practices.
