Lobbying Efforts

Be heard. Focusing on provincial government lobbying activities, we have a dedicated team whose sole purpose is advocacy for the profession and for patients. We are also involved in federal advocacy in partnership with the Canadian Dental Association. At the municipal level, we work with component societies on the administration and delivery of social assistance programs. While our advocacy efforts take place primarily behind the scenes, they have helped to significantly advance our profession.
