Background
The Canadian Dental Association (CDA) is the authoritative national voice of dentistry, dedicated to the representation and advancement of the profession, nationally and internationally, and to the achievement of optimal oral health.
Founded in 1902, CDA is a non-profit professional association representing Canada's 18,000 dentists. Located in Ottawa, Ontario, CDA serves its members and the public by managing key oral health issues on their behalf and by coordinating dental health awareness programs across the nation.
A resource to industry players and dentists, CDA works with dentists and other key stakeholders to preserve the integrity of Canada's unique oral health care system. CDA isactively involved with lobbying and advocacy initiatives and uses its leadership role to communicate to the public and the government the profession's concerns regarding managed dental care.
Some examples of our achievements include:
The widespread fluoridation of municipal water supplies Canadians enjoy today;
Successful lobbying of the federal government on taxation issues surrounding the taxation of dental benefits plans; and
Ongoing work with Canadian employers and other stakeholders to preserve the integrity of Canada's unique oral health care delivery system.
