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.
Please be advised that the Annual General Meeting of the Canadian Association of Hospital Dentists will be held electronically by Zoom videoconference on Friday, June 11, 2021 beginning at 10:45 A.M. EST.
