Topic: “CORPORATIZATION– What does it mean for our profession?”

Speaker: College of Dental Surgeons of BC * / BCDA* / Ms. Nadean Burkett*

Facilitator: Dr. Ben Kang (Co-Chair, CCDSBC CE Committee)

SYNOPSIS: In recent years, there has been a wave of corporatization in the field of dentistry. Many of the solo/group practitioners are beginning to feel the changing tide. Is this the inevitable? Are we losing our autonomy as clinicians? What does corporatization mean for our profession or, more importantly, the public? In this CE forum, we have speakers from the College of Dental Surgeons of BC, BC Dental Association, and “My Practice Matters”. Each party will present and discuss different aspects of corporatization in dentistry. At the end of the forum, there is a designated open forum which is open to the members and attendees for their pressing questions.
