4) How CAPD/ACDP supports this valuable relationship?
Collaboration of CAPD/ACDP and CPS has been very beneficial in advocacy and promoting oral health to all
health care professionals across Canada. Members of the CAPD/ACDP Executive Committee have been
instrumental in founding and supporting the CPS-OHS. The CAPD/ACDP sponsors a CPS speaker at the CAPD
annual conference to lecture on medical topics relevant to pediatric dentists. Previous speakers have included
Dr. Anne-Rowan Legg who spoke in Ottawa on complex special needs patients and Dr. Laura Purcell who spoke
in Toronto on concussions. Similarly, CPS and CAPD/ACDP sponsors a speaker at the CPS annual conference
to promote awareness of oral health to pediatricians. The CPS-OHS is the only section that has consistently had
a speaker at each CPS annual conference since its inception. The CAPD/ACDP also sponsors the CPS-OHS
President to attend the CAPD/ACDP annual conference to liaise with the CAPD Executive Committee, Chair of
the Scientific Committee, and CAPD/ACDP annual LOC; further strengthening the relationship between
CAPD/ACDP and CPS.
