FAQ: Accessing the Portal 

I'm not a BCDA member. How do I become a subscriber?

Non-member dentists, all dental team members and health professionals in and outside of British Columbia can subscribe to the BCDA CE Program. There is no fee to subscribe but you must complete the online subscriber profile to access and register for courses on the CE Portal.

Can my dental office subscribe to the CE Portal as a group?

Courses eligible for CE credit can only be taken by individual subscribers. There are no group or office subscriptions.

I am a BCDA member. I'm having problems logging in to the CE Portal.

BC dentists use the same login (username and password) to access the CE Portal and the BCDA member website. You will need to log in again, but you will won't need to create a new login.

  • Forget your USERNAME (email address)? Contact BCDA at 604 736 7202 or bcda@bcdental.org. Do not create a "new member" account or a CE subscriber profile. This will cause problems in our database.
  • Forget your PASSWORD? Use the "Forgot Your Password" link on the BCDA MEMBER login page. We will email your password to you.
  • Do you have multiple email addresses? Change your login username or password by logging in to the BCDA Member website. Go to Inside BCDA/Member Profile/Modify Member Profile to change your username (email address) and password. Remember: this will change your login for BOTH the BCDA Member website and the CE Portal. Ensure that the email address is a current, personal address in order to receive important CE News for program updates, course discounts and CE credit information.
