The College of Denturists of Ontario (CDO) values our stakeholder’s feedback on policies, regulations, by-laws and other initiatives that are in development, and we invite you to participate in our open consultations.

Open Consultations

The practice of denturism is self-regulated. That means our members play an important role in setting and meeting the CDO Standards of Practice. Denturists are invited to provide feedback during a 60-day consultation period before Council votes to approve new or amended standards of practice. Government, the public and other interested parties are also asked for comment.

All feedback is provided (non-nominally) to Council for consideration prior to approving the standards. Consultation feedback is collated and incorporated into the draft documents, and both are brought to Council for review. College Council considers the feedback and approves the draft documents, as presented or with revisions. 

This consultation period, Council is seeking denturists and other stakeholder’s opinion on the following documents (YOU CAN PROVIDE FEEDBACK by completing the surveys, please note each document has its own individual survey):
