Sexual Abuse Protection

RCDSO investigates all allegations of sexual abuse against Ontario dentists. We provide funding for counselling and legal consultation for victims that file a complaint with the College.

Our Practice Advisory on Prevention of Sexual Abuse and Boundary Violations details our advice to dentists on this important issue. To make information about sexual abuse education more prominent, we post information on sexual abuse prevention on our website.

The College's Patient Relations Committee also regularly reviews our practice advisory to ensure the information adequately addresses this important topic.

If you think you have experienced sexual abuse by an Ontario dentist, please contact the College at 1-800-565-4591 or via email at We are here to listen, to answer your questions and investigate your concerns.
