Our Inspection
 Programs


 

The College currently operates two inspection programs: the first relates to members seeking authorization to operate dental CT scanners, the second relates to members seeking authorization to provide sedation and general anesthesia services.

Any facility where a dentist wishes to install and operate a dental CT scanner is required to apply for and be issued a facility permit.

Likewise, every dental facility providing sedation and/or general anesthesia services must have a facility permit issued by the College and every practitioner who administers a level of sedation governed by the College is required to have their training and qualifications approved by the College prior to being able to administer sedation and/or general anesthesia.
