What is the Largest Dental Organization in Canada?

123Dentist is considered the largest network of majority-owned Canadian dental offices, even at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The expansion of the DCC network is due to its success in growing organically through referrals and positive word of mouth. Business sophistication and collaboration have enabled Dental Corporation of Canada (DCC) to become the world-class business partner of choice for leading dentists across the country. The Canadian Dental Association (CDA) is a non-regulatory authority and a federation of provincial and territorial dental associations (PDAs) in Canada, representing more than 21,000 practicing dentists from coast to coast.

The company's network has grown to include a wide range of general and specialty dentists, such as orthodontists, periodontists, maxillofacial surgeons and pediatric dentists. DCC provides its partners with a variety of deliverables to maximize operational efficiency, such as valuable resources for recruiting and developing talent, assistance with brand positioning and marketing, purchasing power of dental supplies, and office management. The company has also made a multi-year philanthropic commitment as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) platform, which includes the “Give Back Smile Back” program that offers free oral hygiene and orthodontic appointments to those without regular access to dental care. The CDA is actively involved in lobbying and advocacy initiatives and uses its leadership role to communicate to the public and government the profession's concerns regarding managed dental care.

It is based on the dental symbol, the Rod of Asclepius surrounded by an intertwined circle and triangle. Dentalcorp acquires and partners with the best dental offices in the country to provide resources, support and technology to ensure they stay at the forefront of oral care in Canada. The changing dental environment across Canada means dentists are constantly faced with the increasing complexities and challenges of running their businesses while adapting to technological advances. Dentalcorp's proprietary online directory helps Dentalcorp offices stand out from the crowd with convenience and choice.

Each partner and practice is unique, but they share a commitment to patient care and a track record of success within the Dentalcorp network.
