RCDSO Register

Bill 87: Protecting Patients Act

The Protecting Patients Act was given Royal Assent on 30 May 2017. That legislation makes several important changes to the Regulated Health Professions Act. You can see a list of some of those changes on our website.

We are updating our website and register to reflect the changes to the law. If you have questions please contact RCDSO Registrar Irwin Fefergrad.

How to use the Register

The register includes four search types:

Dentist Search

Use this search to find information related to a dentist or practice. To narrow down your results, provide as much information as possible. You will be able to click on any of the results in order to get more information, such as practice address, registration history and discipline results.

Health Profession Corporation Search

Use this search to find information related to a health profession corporation. Please note that in 2002 dentists in Ontario were permitted to establish Health Profession Corporations and to bill their services to patients through these corporations. The HPC name is not the same as the dental practice name. To search for a dental practice name please use the Dentist Search.

Sedation and Anesthesia Facility Permit Search
