Christian Dental Association
CMDA's Dental Ministries is dedicated to encouraging and supporting dentists in living out their Christian faith in their professional and personal lives. We are an outreach that encourages and supports dental professionals and students as they strive to integrate their Christian faith into all aspects of their lives, while providing opportunities for training and equipping.
We are expanding our ministry, services and resources for our dental members, as well as intensifying our outreach in dental schools across the country. Students are an integral part of our ministry. Top leaders in dentistry from across the nation come together at the Emerging Leaders in Dentistry Symposium to train dental students to become a Christ-centered leader. Resources specific to students can be found at cmda.org/student-life.
