Designation of a representative/agent

Dentists practicing the profession in a partnership/company can designate a professional – a lawyer, notary, tax expert, accountant or other expert – to act on their behalf and be given authorization to complete the annual declaration form of the partnership/company online and pay the required fees.

Designation of a representative/agent

To designate a representative/agent, dentists and their representatives must complete and sign the form “Designation – Revocation of a Representative/Agent” and email it to declarationsociete2022@odq.qc.ca.

Forms will processed in a timely manner once they are received by the Order and a confirmation will be sent to the dentists and professionals involved.

Identification code and access

Designated professionals will be given a personal identification code, which will allow them to access the account of the partnership/company identified. They will then be able to complete the annual declaration form and pay the required fees on behalf of the partnership/company and its establishments.

 

Revocation of a representative/agent

Designated professionals will keep their access rights after the March 31, 2022 deadline unless a notice of revocation is duly completed and signed (form entitled “Designation – Revocation of a Representative/Agent”) is sent to the Order at declarationsociete2022@odq.qc.ca.

Forms will processed in a timely manner once they are received by the Order and a confirmation will be sent to the dentists and professionals involved.

Required fees

The fees required by the Order for the Annual Declaration are now set at $300 for each partnership/company. The same fees apply to each additional establishment operated* by the partnership/company.

(*) A partnership or company OPERATES one or more establishments when it OWNS or RENTS one or more physical premises where dentistry is practiced.


A partnership or company DOES NOT OPERATE ANY establishments when it serves EXCLUSIVELY to collect fees resulting from the provision of professional services in connection with the practice of dentistry, such as a self-employed dentist whose earnings from practicing the profession are paid to their partnership or company rather than to them personally, in their name


For example, a partnership or company that does not operate an establishment or operates only a single establishment must pay a fee of 300$. A partnership or company operating two establishments is required to pay 600$, corresponding to 300$ for the partnership/company itself and first establishment and 300$ for the second establishment.

The required fees must be paid online by Visa or MasterCard.

Deadline

The deadline for completing the Annual Declaration form AND paying the required fees is March 31, 2022. After this date, fees and penalties will apply to those who have not fulfilled both obligations. To learn more, please consult the Fees and Penalties table.
