The RCDSO is the governing body for dentists in Ontario. Our mission is to protect the public's right to quality dental services by providing leadership to the dental profession in self-regulation.

We regulate the more than 9,000 registered dentists in the province and develop programs to ensure that dentists continue to enhance their knowledge and skills and to promote high standards of continuing dental education. We are a not-for-profit organization.

RCDSO’s main mission is to protect the public’s right to quality dental services. Our goal is a responsible and responsive system of self-regulation in partnership with the public.

We are committed to the principles of transparency, accessibility, openness and fairness. These principles influence everything we do, both in the advice we provide to dentists and the way we conduct business as an organization.
