ODA Awards

ODA awards are given to individuals or groups who provide outstanding service to and contribute to the advancement of the dental profession in Ontario.

HPDA has an Honours and Awards Committee that submits nominations to the ODA.  If you would like to make a nomination, please contact the HPDA President.

The honours and awards available are outlined below.

Honorary Membership

Honorary Membership recognizes outstanding contributions to the art and science of dentistry on either a provincial or national level for a period of not less than thirty years. The award includes a personalized, framed parchment scroll, a lapel medal, and exemption from payment of ODA membership for life with the retainment of all rights and privileges of an Active Member.

Barnabus Day Distinguished Service Award

The Barnabus Day Award recognizes outstanding contributions to the dental profession.

This award includes a personalized, framed parchment scroll and a lapel medal.

The Community Service Recognition Awards

The Community Service Recognition Awards recognize ODA members who, through exceptional efforts, have made outstanding contributions to the well-being of their communities.

This award consists of a personalized, framed parchment scroll.
