What are the Benefits of Student Membership?

Student Members are in a unique position to make the most of CAPD/ACDP resources and the peer networking opportunities that membership offers.

Membership in CAPD/ACDP is in the best interests of all pediatric dentists in Canada. As a group, we are able to speak in a unified voice and promote pediatric oral health care and our interests on a national level.

As an association of professionals, the CAPD/ACDP has a number of benefits that raise the profile of our members in the community and across Canada, as well as enhancing both educational and networking opportunities.
