CDA Journal

This award-winning peer-reviewed scientific publication keeps dentists up-to-date about scientific advances, business management strategies and new products. It also features thought-provoking editorials, practice support, risk management and regulatory compliance articles and technological trends that affect dentistry. 

Current Issue
December 2014 Journal of the California Dental Association

The December 2014 issue of the Journal of the California Dental Association focuses on implant dentistry. Based on scientific evidence, dental implants are great alternatives when there are no teeth. However, the question remains if they are a good alternative to replace teeth from a prognostic standpoint.


CDA Update

Every month, thousands of CDA members turn to the Update for the latest information about current and developing topics in dentistry. The Update is a trusted source for news that directly affects dentists, including dental benefit plans, legislation and advocacy, patient safety and more. 

Current Issue
December 2014

The December 2014 issue of the CDA Update includes information on how CDA members helped defeat Proposition 46. Also included is guidance on preparing for dental code changes in 2015; data breach law amendments that are coming in January; and how to e-prescribe newly reclassified hydrocodone drugs.
