…..A large number of regulated medical professionals such as dentists choose to operate their practice through a medicine professional corporation. Once incorporated, a Certificate of Authorization from the health regulatory College – the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) is required to practice medicine in Ontario. Regardless of the date of issuance, all Certificates of Authorization were required to be renewed by August 31 of each year. Historically, the RCDSO allowed late submissions after the deadline and up to the end of the grace period up until November. Starting this year, it is no longer the case.
Important Changes to the Renewal Process
According to the recent announcement made by the RCDSO, the regulator no longer offers any grace period for renewals. The hard deadline to renew the Certificate of Authorization is August 31, 2022 (this deadline applies to all registered dentistry professional corporations, regardless of when its certificate was issued).
If the renewal process is not completed by the deadline, the Certificate of Authorization will
automatically be revoked effective September 1, 2022 and the revocation will be displayed on the
dentist’s Public Register profile. As a result, the dentist will be required to apply for a new Certificate
of Authorization and pay extra fees.
Please check here the official infographics released by the RCDSO that summarizes some important dates and information on fees.
