Member Benefits

Access to the Mutual Benefit Assistance Program

  • Timely, confidential advice from Dentist Risk Managers  to help you resolve issues early, before they escalate into more serious matters.
  • Financial  assistance for legal representation provided by hand-picked lawyers from our CDPA Lawyers List, with all approved legal expenses paid for by the CDPA in eligible situations, with no deductibles.


  • Seminars, newsletters, and eBulletins, to keep you abreast of current risk management issues and help you avoid problems in clinical practice.

Peer to Peer Assistance

  • Knowledge that you have access to professional assistance, dentist to dentist, whenever you feel your right to practice may be threatened or in jeopardy.

Assistance with Employee-Related Issues
The CDPA provides  proactive risk management advice for certain employee-related issues and solicitor’s legal advice for specific eligible situations when required through the Assistance Program.

Now Providing Assistance with Associate Agreements For Recent Graduates
The CDPA has expanded the Assistance Program to include a two hour review of Associate Agreements for recent graduates.  This has been established to answer a need for our members who have recently graduated and are entering practice.   Our ability to add this value added member service is a direct result of the prudent management and the financial position of the Association.
