The Fitness to Practise Committee determines if a dentist is incapacitated and, if so, how to deal with the member.
“Incapacitated” means that the member is suffering from a physical or mental condition or disorder that makes it desirable in the interest of the public that the member’s certificate of registration be subject to terms, conditions or limitations, or that the member no longer be permitted to practice.
If a panel of the Fitness to Practise Committee finds that a member is incapacitated, it will make an order doing any one of the following:
- Direct the Registrar to revoke the member’s certificate of registration.
- Direct the Registrar to suspend the member’s certificate of registration.
- Direct the Registrar to impose specified terms, conditions and limitation on the member’s certificate of registration for a specified or indefinite period of time.
