Association of Prosthodontists of Canada

The Association of Prosthodontists of Canada(APC),a  representative body of the Canadian specialty of prosthodontics, is an association recognized the Canadian Dental Association(CDA).The objectives of this association are:

  • To enhance the  Prosthodontic service quality offered to the public utilising educational activities which are designed to bring out novel ideas, techniques and research methods for clinical practice and thereby encouraging to develop an  interest  in the Specialty of Prosthodontics .
  • To act as the voice of Prosthodontics in Canada while being in association with Canadian Dental Association and Provincial Prosthodontic Associations.

Canada’s fixed prosthodontists and removable prosthodontists who were initially represented by separate bodies now became part of a single national association due to principle  of  APC that its membership will only be limited to all educationally qualified or licensed prosthodontists in Canada. The Canadian Dental Association(CDA)  Board of Governors recognized APC as its Specialty Section for Prosthodontics after it came up with the speciality sector idea consulting with the 2 academies. The APC receives information regarding representation of prosthodontists from both national membership as well as from the APC-recognized provincial and regional organizations in in this field. Information and initiatives are discussed at the meetings of the CDA board of governors after they are notified to the CDA staff by the APC executive council. The APC also may have a communication with 8 other CDA recognized dental speciality organizations in Canada. To facilitate this communication APC has proposed the establishment of  the Canadian Federation of Dental Specialty Organizations which is desired to resolve interdisciplinary dental specialty issues in Canada. The APC has also been dealing with the issue regarding  the fact that in Canada every province have their own licensing authority thus as a  prosthodontist, one does not presently have universal portability of licensure for all of Canada’s provinces and territories. In July 1st,2001 the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) mentioned that an agreement was made between the Provincial Dental Regulatory Authorities (DRAs) which allowed the dental specialists to practice their profession freely while moving across provincial borders without the need to qualify any examonations. Accordingly the DRAs developed the criteria for a national agreement to establish portability of licensure for dental specialists (among others in the dental profession) under this Agreement. APC has been working in association with both the American college of prosthodontists and the International College of Prosthodontists thereby exploring ways for further development of the synergy of their three organizations   in the international prosthodontic community.
