Welcome to the Oregon Dental Association!

Oregon Dental Association is dedicated to advancing the dental profession and promoting the highest standard of oral health and oral healthcare.

Established in 1893, ODA is a voluntary membership organization for Oregon dentists. We provide continuing education, advocacy and other services for dentists and public information to promote good dental health.   ODA is comprised of 16 local dental societies throughout Oregon that provide continuing education and service programs in their local communities.

The American Dental Association (ADA), based in Chicago, is ODA's parent organization. ADA provides research, public information and continuing education programs. The ADA represents dentistry through national legislative and regulatory efforts and provides patient education materials on preventive care and dental health.

The ODA’s charitable arm, The Dental Foundation of Oregon (DFO) was founded in 1982 and is dedicated to advancing oral health education, providing charitable care and coordinating resources for Oregon’s children and vulnerable communities.
