The CDSA investigates all allegations of sexual misconduct and sexual abuse of patients about Alberta dentists. We provide funding for counselling for individuals that file a complaint with the CDSA.
Our guides on Prevention of Sexual Abuse and Boundary Violations detail our advice to dentists on this important issue. To make information about sexual misconduct and sexual abuse education more prominent, we post information on sexual abuse prevention on our website.
If you think you have experienced sexual misconduct or sexual abuse by an Alberta dentist, please contact the CDSA at 1-800-843-3848. We are here to listen, to answer your questions and investigate your concerns.
Sexual Misconduct & Sexual Abuse Complaints
The CDSA investigates all allegations of sexual misconduct and sexual abuse. We recognize that reporting these allegations can be difficult. We have a number of supports in place to assist people who report these concerns.
We will offer funding for therapy or counselling for patients who file a complaint alleging sexual misconduct or abuse by a dentist as required by the Health Professions Act. For support services available in Alberta visit: Sexual Assault Services in Alberta.
