    The slow decay of dentistry

    Advocacy - Influencing outcomes that protect, promote, and advance the dental profession I think we have different meanings of protection

    The slow decay of dentistry

    Doesn’t the CDA have a voice in all of this? The CMA protects the Canadian medical graduates more than the CDA does with Canadian dental graduates. Is this fair to say?

    The slow decay of dentistry

    Is there even a limit as to how many foreign trained dentists can do the equivalency process? If more and more dentists take part and assuming the same pass rate, then more and more dentists will be qualified to work in Canada year after year. I bet in the next couple of years there will be more foreign trained dentists certified than Canadian students. This is absurd.

    I would do a mandatory GPR if it means not having to deal with this saturation bs lol

    Wouldn't it be cheaper for the government to train foreign doctors in residency and then lower the renumeration as a whole? There's a reason why doctors are highly paid, and that's because they need to do their job right without thinking of over saturation or increased competition. I don't see why it's different for dentistry.
  7. Does being a francophone applicant give better odds at any of these schools (except for Ottawa which I know they do) ?

    Thousands of immigrant doctors want to come and practise their chosen profession, why doesn’t Canada let them in? More doctors = more access to care. It’s because the numbers of doctors is regulated and continuously changed according to population needs. They should do the same with dentists. After all they’re all healthcare professions. At the end of the day, we don’t want dentists over treating their patients like doctors would do if they were over saturated. Correct me if I’m wrong

    I did not know that, I still thought you needed to be a dentist to own a practise. My bad. Guess laws change all the times

    Yea, even though you need to be a dentist to own a dental practise, they found a way around it and a lot of the practises are now not owner-operated.

    With less saturation, dentists will also be more inclined to refer out the necessary procedures to specialists without trying to keep them in house since they have more patients to take care of. The patients will be in better hands that way. Sadly, whoever decided on the equivalency process is digging dentistry in a big hole that will take a long time to fix

    Ultimately the patient suffers, dentists will try to over treat in order to maintain their incomes in face of the saturation. This is why it's a problem and needs to be addressed.

  14. Je crois que le barème de notes à uMontreal est 90+ = A+ mais à uLaval, c'est 94+ = A+, pourquoi cette différence? Est-ce plus facile d'avoir une bonne moyenne à Montréal qu'à Laval?
