Description:

The College of Dental Surgeons of Saskatchewan (CDSS) participates with other health professionals, organizations and governments, to provide quality Oral Health Care to the people of Saskatchewan through the authority granted by the Dental Disciplines Act 1997 and the CDSS Bylaws. A Council, consisting of seven dentists elected by the general membership of the college and three consumer representatives appointed by the government, governs the College and attempts to ensure these goals are met by: Fostering professionalism among our members; Self-regulation of members through the formation of peer-review committees; Sponsoring continuing education; Promoting the profession in general. The College of Dental Surgeons of Saskatchewan does not set or control the fees charged by individual dentists, however we can and do investigate fee and treatment disputes on behalf of consumers. The peer-review groups perform a valuable service by acting as an outside, but knowledgeable source of opinion. They can provide the consumer with information why a situation should be approached in a particular way, and/or why a fee is fair and reasonable. Similarly, they can inform a dentist that he/she is unreasonable or inappropriate. Most consumers who have dealt with the peer-review committees or had a dispute arbitrated feel that the outcome has been fair and appropriate.
