About NSDA

The Voice for Dentistry in Nova Scotia

The Nova Scotia Dental Association (NSDA) is a member-based organization serving the needs of more than 500 dentist members across the province.

As a not-for-profit organization, the NSDA has been the voice for dentistry in Nova Scotia since 1891. The Association is directed by its Governing Council of 15 dentists, who determine the NSDA’s focus and scope of activities and programming.

The NSDA is a member of the Canadian Dental Association, alongside provincial dental associations in Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and the Northwest Territories and Nunavut Dental Association and Yukon Dental Association. Our mission is to help the dentists of Nova Scotia to be better dentists in service to all Nova Scotians.

This mission is achieved through the NSDA’s member-targeted programs and services, as well as through oral health promotion activities and partnerships with community-based organizations and the Faculty of Dentistry at Dalhousie University.
