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.
COVID-19 Vaccine Access Assistance Survey
ODA is collecting information of dental providers outside of the tri-counties
who still need access to the COVID-19 vaccine. Please complete this form if you still need access to the COVID-19 vaccine
. We will share the information with the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), who will coordinate with local public health departments to get dental professionals scheduled for COVID-19 vaccinations.
Please note: if you reside in Multnomah, Clackamas, or Washington County, please utilize OHA's chatbot tool online here
to schedule an appointment at the Oregon Convention Center (OCC). About halfway down the webpage
, you will see a blue-and-white button for the eligibility tool, labeled "Let's Get Started." Follow the prompts, and you will be linked to the OCC scheduling site.
