The Ontario Dental Association is a professional organization for dentists in the Canadian province of Ontario. It establishes a fee schedule and represents the interests of its members in dealing with the Ontario government and insurance companies.[1]

A separate organization, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, regulates the dental profession in Ontario.


It was founded by Dr. Barnabas Day in 1867.[2][3] The first woman member was Caroline Louise Josephine Wells, who joined in 1893.[4]
