Launched in 2015, CAHD was created to support hospital-based Canadian dentists and to be a resource for the profession and the public on matters related to hospital dentistry. Embracing a collaborative and inclusive approach and in partnership with dental and medical colleagues and organizations, CAHD will advance safe, accessible, ethical and evidence-based oral health care in our complex health system. At the inaugural meeting of CAHD, members made a commitment to develop and lead a Canadian national strategy for Antimicrobial Stewardship in Dentistry.
