STUDENT MEMBERSHIP IN CAPD/ACDP
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.

20 Student Benefits of CAPD/ACDP Membership
The Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (CAPD) / Académie Canadienne de Dentisterie Pédiatrique (ACDP) is the membership organization representing over 300 pediatric dentists across Canada. Our members serve as primary and comprehensive oral health care providers for thousands of children from infancy through adolescence. With specialized techniques of behaviour management and dental care we provide the diagnostic, preventive, therapeutic and consultative expertise required by children, including those with special care needs.
In March, 2017, a Student Member survey was conducted to determine the extent to which Student Members were aware of the benefits and value-proposition of CAPD/ACDP membership. Please click here to see the Survey Results.
