Since 1867, the ODA has been the voluntary professional association representing the dentists of Ontario.
Today, there are more than 10,000 ODA dentists, which is more than nine in 10 dentists in the province. The ODA is Ontario’s primary source of information on oral health and on the dental profession. We advocate with a unified voice for accessible and sustainable optimal oral health for all Ontarians. Working with health-care professionals, governments, the private sector and the public, the ODA promotes the highest standards of dental care and the critical role of the dentist as the leader of the oral health-care team.
