Our Commitment to Transparency
The ADA&C acknowledges the importance of transparency as we evolve to being an independent College and an independent Association. We are committed to sharing information, providing answers and facilitating feedback with our membership, the public and our stakeholders.
Council, Administration and Membership will work together in a collaborative and respectful manner to achieve the ultimate goals of:
- A College that fulfils the mandate of public protection.
- An independent Dental Association that is founded in good governance and is able to provide its membership with all the products, programs, and services that they have come to expect from a strong Association.
We have begun the process of reviewing all our products, programs and services, and expect that our full transition will take place within the 18 month timeframe of Bill 46. We will provide updates on a regular basis.
We welcome questions from our membership, the public and our stakeholders.
We are committed to addressing all questions as transparently as possible with the information at hand. To submit a question, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
