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

Friends and Colleagues:

The 102nd year of the Edmonton & District Dental Society is upon us and on behalf of the EDDS executive I invite you and your staff to join up for a year of education and events.

Our Friday seminar series has a diverse range of topics: organizational productivity, clinical oral pathology, psychiatric illness and dentistry, sleep disordered breathing/OSA, composite dentistry and orthodontics. As always we encourage you to attend and involve your staff and associate dentists for some learning, fellowship and collaboration.

A great deal of thanks belongs to our Distinguished Partners: Universal Dental Labs, TD Canada Trust and Patterson Dental. With their support we are able to provide well over 30 hours of CE at a very affordable price. We thank as well our Major Sponsor Sinclair Dental and Corporate Sponsor Henry Schein for their support.

Enjoy this year of learning.
