What's News in Prosthodontics




Due to recent changes in the governance structure of the The Canadian Dental Association (CDA), the Canadian Dental Specialties Association has been formed to collectively represent the voice of dental specialists to the CDA.

The nine participating specialty associations include Canadian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology (CAOMR), Canadian Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology and Oral Medicine (CAOMP/OM), Canadian Association of Public Health Dentistry (CAPHD), Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (CAPD), Canadian Academy of Endodontics (CAE), Canadian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (CAOMS), Canadian Academy of Periodontology (CAP), Canadian Association of Orthodontists (CAO) and the Association of Prosthodontists of Canada (APC). 

The purpose of the CDSA is to fund two of its members as representatives of all nine specialty sections at the Dentistry Leaders’ Forum of the CDA and send observers to the CDA General Assembly.

An introductory letter from the CDSA president will be sent to the Association of Canadian Faculties of Dentistry (ACFD), Canadian Association for Dental Research (CADR), Canadian Dental Association (CDA), Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada (CDAC), National Dental Examining Board of Canada (NDEB), Royal College of Dentists of Canada (RCDC), Canadian Forces Dental Services and the Office of the Chief Dental Officer of Canada followed by a letter to the president of the Canadian Dental Regulatory Authorities Federation (CDRAF) to offer our services and request our involvement in the National Specialty Definition Process.
