Practice Members automatically qualify for inclusion on the most powerful branding and promotion tool available to independent dentists in Canada.  The Doctor Owned & Operated™ network- https://doonetwork.org – will connect the public with our Practice Members when they are searching for a dentist in their community.   Moreover, our membership is encouraged to contribute to articles, newsletters and other patient education that will be posted and updated regularly in the form of blogs and FAQs.

From time to time, we will survey our members through the Member Services Forum to determine what services they want and need to further enhance their careers and practices.  The My Practice Matters™ network is for you, so tell us how we can serve you better.

We’re planning for the future –
