Professional Assistance by Dentists for Dentists

The CDPA provides risk management advice, and funding for legal assistance to those members faced with upset patients, regulatory matters, and certain investigations. 

Why Join the CDPA?

  • The CDPA was founded in 1994 and has over twenty years of experience assisting dentists with professional issues routinely arising in a dental practice.
  • Patient complaints are on the rise and the CDPA has a 20-year history of helping resolve these issues early.
