Welcome to CCDA
Collier County Dental Association

The Collier County Dental Association is a professional membership organization representing Florida-licensed dentists practicing in Collier County.  Founded in 1973 by a handful of outstanding dental professionals, the CCDA has developed a rich and storied history of service to the citizens of Collier County.  The members of the CCDA are committed to providing the highest quality of care to patients throughout the county.  Currently nearly 150 dentists and dental specialists comprise the growing membership.

The CCDA’s mission is one of public advocacy as the members of the CCDA are ambassadors of organized dentistry at the local, state, and national levels through the CCDA, the Florida Dental Association, and the American Dental Association.

It is also a mission of the CCDA to advance public health through professional education as the CCDA has developed the Lorenzo Walker Vocational Technical Dental Assisting Program, supporting the Neighborhood Clinic, and in the past has assisted in establishing and funding the Edison Community College Dental Hygiene Program.
