The British Columbia Dental Association (BCDA) supports COVID-19 vaccinations for BC health care workers, including oral health care professionals.
At the request of members, BCDA successfully advocated for dentists to receive the COVID-19 vaccine earlier than the general public, and to also become vaccine administrators
BCDA strongly upholds the confidentiality of personal health information of dentists and their staff.
The BC Dental Association is the voice of BC dentists. We advocate for our members and promote access to dental care for all British Columbians.
BCDA responded publicly to a Letter to the Editor in the Oct. 27 Comox Valley Record, in which a patient criticized a local dental practice for not disclosing the vaccination status of their staff. BCDA provided a written response to the publication, which is now on the newspaper’s website. The letter emphasized the stringent infection control procedures, and additional COVID-19 protocols BC dental teams are employing. View the original letter.
