Why Join the Halton Peel Dental Association?
We believe that life long learning by our dentists and their staff is the key to success for every professional and allows us to serve our community and our patients in the best possible way. To this end, HPDA hosts several top quality continuing education courses on current and relevant clinical topics with well respected and well known speakers.
Through our seminars and social events we provide dentists with the opportunity to meet other dentists in the community and discuss and share business or dental issues and concerns.
ODA Councillors representing Halton and Peel Regions provide a local voice at ODA General Council which has representatives from component societies across Ontario as well as from the Canadian Dental Association, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario and various dental specialist societies.
In addition, should the need arise, HPDA, through our Mediations Committee and the ODA, will offer to facilitate conflict resolution for our members and their patients.
Although our continuing education seminars are a healthy mix of laughter and learning, we do have several events specifically dedicated to socialization.
Our Gala on September 17, 2015 provides an opportunity to meet the HPDA executive, dental industry representatives, politicians and leaders from the ODA; all while chatting with friends and enjoying the excellent cuisine at Credit Valley Golf & Country Club.
On April 28, 2016, enjoy fine wine and a gourmet dinner at our annual HPDA Wine Tasting at the Mississauga Golf and Country Club.
An exciting day of Golf is in plan for us. TMFD (TaxMatters For Dentists) is hosting TMFD Golf Day on Friday, May 27th at Blue Springs Golf Course.
We end the year with the Toronto Boat Cruise on Friday, June 10, 2016. After a wonderful meal with friends, enjoy the sunset and dance until dark.
On behalf of the Halton Peel Dental Association, we would like to welcome all ODA member dentists in Halton Peel and other societies to join us for another exciting year of learning, collegiality, and socialization. We look forward to sharing our planned program and initiatives with you. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.
