President's Message

Dr. Catherine DaleWelcome to the Manitoba Dental Association website. Here, the public will find information detailing how Manitoba dentists are here to serve you. Dentistry in Manitoba is regulated via The Dental Association Act and a variety of by-laws to ensure the provision of safe, ethically responsible oral health care for Manitobans. Our mandate is Protection of the Public: "If it is in the best interest of the public then it is in the best interest of the profession."

The MDA is the legislative self-governing body for the profession of dentistry and dental assisting in Manitoba. The MDA is also a membership services organization, and we are here to ensure Manitoba dentists have the resources and support available to ensure a healthy practise environment. Within this site, both dentist and dental assistant members will find access to a variety of information to help you practice safely and within the legal parameters governing our profession.

The MDA participates in many aspects of organized dentistry within Canada. We are an organization run by volunteers who serve to advocate for the dental health needs of Manitobans and safe provision of dental care within the province, as well as on a national stage. Here at home, we are committed to working with the University of Manitoba's College of Dentistry, to engage their students during their training program and facilitate their transition to licensed professionals within the province upon their graduation. In fact, Manitoba dentists have established a Mentorship Program with the students of the College of Dentistry; this program has developed over the past several years to become the envy of our colleagues across Canada. It is the MDA's position that by creating these relationships, we can begin to foster an environment of wellbeing amongst our members, thereby creating a positive practise environment. Supporting our members gives back to the community by creating healthy practise models for our patients to benefit from.

There are many resources for patients on our site as well. From the History of Dentistry in Manitoba to our Governing Legislation, the policy and procedures of our association are available for your review. Herein you will also find access to standard dental claim forms, information on dental treatment and prevention of disease, and instructional videos and advice on how to care for your oral health.

I hope that you find our website to be of help when inquiring about your oral health. If you have further questions that aren't adequately addressed by the site? Please give us a call or send us an email—we are here to help!

Wishing you all the Best in Oral Health,

Dr. Catherine Dale
