Who We Are

This society is neither a regulatory body nor an educational institute.
However, it can play a pivotal role for both ourselves and the people we serve: our patients.

The mission of the Edmonton & District Dental Society is to support Edmonton and area dental professionals by:

  • providing professional education
  • providing networking opportunities
  • promoting dentistry as a profession
  • contribute to the community
Celebrating 100 Years

In 2013, the EDDS celebrated its 100th anniversay.

Our Vision is to continuously promote excellence in Dental Health Care Education.

Our goal is to provide an environment for continual renewal, self-renewal with a congenial social atmosphere and a progressive curriculum.

We help foster a positive attitude for our profession, as a caring group displaying leadership in our community.

President's Message

Thank you for the honour of being elected as EDDS president for 2020-2021. This last year has brought much modernization to our organization. I plan to encourage this continued innovation and would like to continue to improve EDDS’s online presence and accessibility, increase exposure and encourage younger dentists to become members of
this great organization! I hope you will be impressed with this year’s lineup of first-class lecturers.

The executive and I will take on the challenges that COVID-19 poses and support our members: the Edmonton and area dental professionals.

Dr. Dominika Szyling
