Course Description:

This is a half-day session, reviewing the major public policy issues facing dentistry today. These include:

  • The place of dentistry within Canada’s health care system;
  • Demographic changes, oral disease, and access to dental care;
  • Changes in insurance, provider supply, and competition in the dental care market;
  • The corporatization and commercialization of dentistry;
  • Ethical decision-making in dentistry.

The session begins with an historical perspective on the development of Canada’s dental care system, and moves to discussing the various public policy issues outlined above. The overarching aim of the session is to demonstrate the relevance of these public policy issues to clinical practice and organized dentistry. The session is grounded in rich media and quantitative and qualitative data, with debate and discussion encouraged throughout.
