An estimated 10 million Californians experience barriers to dental care. The California Dental Association and the CDA Foundation host CDA Cares, free bi-annual events that provide oral health services and education thousands of Californians most in need.
Thanks to the generosity of our volunteers, donors and sponsors, CDA Cares exemplifies the best of our community in action. Together, we're impacting lives, restoring dignity and creating smiles.
CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry is the nation’s leading dental convention. Experience all the excitement in Anaheim and San Francisco each year, including dynamic speakers, an extensive exhibit hall, hundreds of C.E. opportunities and exciting social events.
It's been nearly 150 years since a small group of dentists founded CDA. Since then we've grown to become the single largest membership in the American Dental Association and a constant trusted resource for California dentists and their patients.
The CDA Foundation is on a mission to improve the oral health care for all Californians by supporting the dental profession in its efforts to meet community needs. Through our events, grants and programs, we’re reducing barriers to care, impacting quality of life and restoring dignity.
