The Halton Peel Dental Association (HPDA) is a component society of the Ontario Dental Association (ODA). HPDA represents more than 1000 dentists and is the largest component society in Canada.
HPDA Vision: To lead dentists and improve oral health in Halton and Peel Regions
• Educate: Provide excellent continuing dental education • Represent: Be the voice of our members • Advocate: Improve the profession and the oral health of our community • Network: Engage with each other and community partners • Mentor: Support each other, share experiences, foster new leaders
• Continuing Education • Collegiality • Compassion • Collaboration • Community Service
We believe that life long learning by our dentists and their staff is the key to success for every professional and allows us to serve our community and our patients in the best possible way. To this end, HPDA hosts several top quality continuing education courses on current and relevant clinical topics with well respected and well known speakers.
Through our seminars and social events we provide dentists with the opportunity to meet other dentists in the community and discuss and share business or dental issues and concerns.
ODA Councillors representing Halton and Peel Regions provide a local voice at ODA General Council which has representatives from component societies across Ontario as well as from the Canadian Dental Association, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario and various dental specialist societies.
In addition, should the need arise, HPDA, through our Mediations Committee and the ODA, will offer to facilitate conflict resolution for our members and their patients.
Although our continuing education seminars are a healthy mix of laughter and learning, we do have several events specifically dedicated to socialization.
Our Annual Gala in September provides an opportunity to meet the HPDA executive, dental industry representatives, politicians and leaders from the ODA; all while chatting with friends and enjoying the excellent cuisine at one of the unique event halls in the region.
In January enjoy Pub & Trivia Night and in June celebrate membership end of the year at one of the best wineries of Niagara Region.
On behalf of the Halton Peel Dental Association, we would like to welcome all ODA member dentists in Halton Peel and other societies to join us for another exciting year of learning, collegiality, and socialization. We look forward to sharing our planned program and initiatives with you. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.
