This program offers the student a solid theoretical foundation and
comprehensive skills-based training, so that program graduates will be
able to practice as independent, licensed Denturists. The program
covers the complete scope of practice in clinical and laboratory
environments. Topics include complete and removable partial dentures,
dentures on implants, and practice management.
After meeting the graduation requirements of the Denturist program,
graduates (candidates) are required to intern at a denture clinic. This
internship is mandatory under Schedule B (Internship Portfolio
Requirements) of the Bylaws of the College of Denturists of BC, and is a
necessary component of the licensure process. It must be completed
prior to sitting the College of Denturists Licensing Examinations.
CDI College, through its Denturism department and Employment Services,
will assist in placement of graduates into internships and monitor their
progress in preparation for their licensing examination. It is,
however, the obligation of the student to find their internship and
follow the policies and procedures, regulations, and professional
conduct necessary to meet the needs to complete their internship
CDI College has been granted conditional approval from the College of
Denturists of British Columbia (CDBC) and is one of only five training
programs in Canada recognized by the CDBC.
