Join or Renew Your CDHA Membership Today

Membership Means More

Be part of the national professional association that does more for you: more learning, more connections, more support, more public recognition, and more savings.

Membership also means more peace of mind thanks to a comprehensive professional liability insurance (PLI) program, automatically included with your CDHA Active (Practising) membership fee. Your policy includes $1M per claim and $5M per year, coverage for defence of complaints made to dental hygiene regulatory bodies, reimbursement of criminal defence costs, pro bono legal assistance, and a two-year extended reporting period, all with no deductible. The policy also protects you 24/7 throughout your full scope of practice as a dental hygienist and is not tied to a place of employment. Get to know the benefits of your PLI policy before you need it. Visit for helpful resources and videos.

NEW! The 2024 PLI policy includes Worldwide coverage for claims brought forward and defended in Canada. For more information about this change and how it may apply to your practice, or for other questions about PLI, please contact our broker, BMS, at 1-855-318-6557 or

Important Update for British Columbia Members

CDHA is now collecting your provincial and national association dues directly rather than through the college, as has been done in the past.

Your renewal will cover a 13-month period (March 1, 2023, to March 31, 2024), for this year only, to realign with the British Columbia College of Oral Health Professionals’ (BCCOHP) new licensing period (April 1 to March 31).

While you'll renew your license with BCCOHP, you’ll now need to renew your BCDHA/CDHA membership with CDHA directly to ensure you have the required professional liability insurance (PLI) in place and continue access to premium membership benefits.

Please refer to our membership FAQs if you have other membership questions.
