New Dentists

You don’t have to go it alone. A whole network of dentists is here to support you. The CDA New Dentist Committee (NDC) works to connect recent graduates, younger dentists and anyone who has recently joined the dental profession. It is a dynamic group that provides great opportunities for networking and innovation in dental practice.

The mission of the NDC is to help new dentists make a successful transition to practice, to encourage membership and volunteer involvement in organized dentistry, to provide resources and education to meet new dentists’ needs, to serve as advocates for the new dentist perspective within organized dentistry and to work to ensure a positive future for the profession through leadership and professional ethics.
