Since 1870, the California Dental Association has worked to empower our state’s brilliant community of dentists. As the largest state association in the ADA, we continue to innovate, sustain and grow to support dentistry’s best and brightest. Today, CDA celebrates a heritage of more than 150 years and welcomes you to be a part of what’s next.
At CDA, everything we do, we do for dentists, their patients and the ever-evolving profession of dentistry. And we believe the that the profession of dentistry should be shaped by those who practice it.
To support our members in their practice and service to the public through innovation in education, advocacy and related programs.
To be the recognized leader for excellence in member services and advocacy promoting oral health and the profession of dentistry.
With the power of many, we are a community where dentists can learn, share, be inspired and grow in their profession. Together, we empower members to excel through dedicated advocacy, protection, education and practice support.
You don’t have to be a dentist to benefit from CDA’s expertise, resources and shared strength.
Governing bodies are comprised of members of the association who are selected to lead and shape our collective futures.
