If you are applying to be a Registered Dental Technician, you must first seek eligibility to sit the College licensure examinations.  These examinations are used to assess an applicant’s ability to meet the current registration requirements and standards for practice in BC.  In order to fulfill the College’s obligation to ensure public safety, successful completion of these examinations is required of all applicants for registration.  Please see General Information regarding RDT Registration for more information about the licensure examinations.

If you are interested in working in a dental laboratory and have not acquired the necessary education or are waiting for the completion of your DT registration, you may do so by registering as a Dental Technician Assistant.

Please note that you must seek registration as a Dental Technician or an Assistant with the College before you can legally work in any dental laboratory in BC.

When all required documentation is received by the College, registration applications can take 1 to 3 weeks to process based on the type of registration applied for.

If you have previously been registered with CDTBC as a RDT, please see Reinstatement.

To apply for registration in any category, you will be required to provide the following:

  1. Your contact information
  2. Your education information
  3. Your work information (if applicable)
  4. Proof of identity (certified passport photo)
  5. Signed Statutory Declaration Form (Form 1)*
  6. Completed and signed application form
  7. Application and/or Registration fees due

Registration fees are prorated depending on the month of initial registration.  Please see Fees for more information.
