Why You Should Join the CADA?

The CADA is your national voice for dentist anaesthesiologists. Interact with your peers, join in high quality continuing education and contribute to dental anaesthesia education.

Who Can Join?

Membership in the Canadian Academy of Dental Anaesthesia is limited to dentists who have successfully completed a formal postgraduate course of training in anaesthesia as it applies to dentistry, consistent with Part 2 of the Association of Canadian Faculties of Dentistry Guidelines for Teaching the Comprehensive Control of Pain and Anxiety at The Advanced Education Level. (The duration of this training must be a minimum of 24 months if completed after 1984. For those who completed their training in or prior to 1984, the duration of this training must be a minimum of 12 months).

Dentists who are currently enrolled in a postgraduate dental anaesthesia program of a minimum of 2 years duration may also join as a resident member. Honourary members are persons who have made an outstanding contribution to the field of dental anaesthesia (nominated by an active member and approved by two thirds majority at a general meeting).

Student Memberships

Dental anaesthesia residents from an accredited program are eligible to join the CADA at NO cost. This gives the opportunity to interact with our members, attend our CE events and contribute research.
