Independent Practice Network (IPN)

A strong independent practice community can work together to change the face of oral health care in Canada. Support for CDHA’s independent practitioners is a high priority for the association. As we continue our efforts to advance independent practice, we recognize that formal mobilization of the group will help move us forward so the Independent Practice Network (IPN) was launched in 2014‒2015. The IPN is designed to meet your specific needs as a member of CDHA’s growing community of independent practice dental hygienists. By joining this exciting network, you will receive several exclusive benefits available ONLY to members of the IPN. Learn more about the IPN.

While all members can purchase access to the independent practice network, individuals must ensure they are able to practice independently in accordance with their regulatory body and have full active CDHA membership.
