About The Convention

The JDA was first established over 90 years ago, and has consistently stood for excellence in dentistry, public health, and innovation. Formed from a need to uphold a high standard and ethical dental work, the JDA has operated to promote top class private and public practice. The Jamaica Dental Association is an ADA CERP Recognized Provider.

The JDA Annual Convention will be renamed the JDA Global Dental Summit for the year 2021. Same warm Jamaican flavor but totally online. As usual we are focusing on increasing dental intelligence for all members of the team. CEUs will be sent directly to you upon completion of viewing the lecturers.
