Current Recommendations and Resources

As of March 18, the College of Dental Surgeons of Saskatchewan (CDSS) has issued an updated statement for dentists. "The Dental Disciplines Act does not provide the CDSS the authority to order a closure of all dental facilities in a province or in an area as a result of a public health emergency. This power is given solely to designated 'medical health officers' pursuant to The Public Health Act, 1994." For this reason, the CDSS can not mandate suspension of all dental services as requested by several CDSS members. The strongest language CDSS can use is “strongly recommend.”
