Competency Proposal. There was a lengthy discussion about the proposal. The Board

   9. Inquiry Committee Decision - Tooth Bleaching

The Board received a copy of a decision of a complaint made by the Inquiry Committee
regarding tooth bleaching. The Members acknowledge that the wording of section 6(6)
of the Denturist Regulation prohibits the alteration of natural teeth. The bleaching of
natural teeth is therefore contrary to the Regulation. The Board agrees that the wording
of the regulation would have to be changed to allow Registrants to bleach natural teeth.

from the College to attend their meeting. A letter apologizing for not being able to
attend the meeting will be sent.
