Events and Recognition

Annual Spring Meeting

Come together at the Annual Spring Meeting, the showcase event of the ODA. It’s an excellent opportunity for you and your dental team to earn continuing education points, interact with dental industry exhibitors and take advantage of great networking and socializing opportunities – all under one roof.

Continuing Education Program

Stay current with ODA’s Continuing Education program, featuring a variety of state-of-the-art learning opportunities designed to inform you about your ever-evolving profession. Our Practice Management Seminars have been developed to meet the unique needs of dentists across various career stages and demographics. And our webinars and self-paced e-learning programs let you earn continuing education points from the comfort of your home.

Events Calendar

Continuing your education and connecting with colleagues in your community haves always been an important part of building a successful practice. The redesigned Events Calendar on allows you to search events by type, region or component society, which will make it easy to connect with your colleagues and boost your knowledge.

New Dentist Symposium

Grow your experience and make connections. For members in practice for 10 years or less, the New Dentist Symposium is a valuable program that aims to address the unique requirements of new dentists and offers an intimate setting to encourage interactions with colleagues and experts.

Honours and Awards Program

Pump up your peers. Our Honours and Awards Program recognizes ODA members for outstanding service to the profession, association and community. The program is based on a peer-recognition model, allowing you to recognize the role your colleagues play in the community, their local component society and at the provincial level – or to have your own contributions recognized. We also celebrate milestone ODA-membership anniversaries.

Volunteer Appreciation Reception

Every spring, we hold a reception to recognize the contributions our volunteers make to our more than 20 committees.
