Meet Dr. Richard Holden, President of the Canadian Dental Association

On April 30th, the Canadian dental community welcomed Dr. Richard Holden, a general dentist from Charlottetown P.E.I. who has dedicated much of his career to organized dentistry, as President of the Canadian Dental Association.

[Addressing] The emotional toll on dentists and the financial toll on dentists in the next year is going to be first and foremost. Secondly, we need to think about the Canadian public. There are patients out there who have lost their jobs, lost their benefits. Access to care is going to be even more of a challenge.”

In this candid interview with Chiraz Guessaier, Manager of CDA Oasis, Dr. Holden talks about some of the inspirations and influences on his thirty-two years of practice and long term involvement in organized dentistry. He discusses his passion for the care of vulnerable populations, particularly the elderly and those with special needs, the importance of making a decision, and the importance of lifelong mentorship.

He also outlines his vision for Canadian dentistry under his Presidency after a year of turmoil for the profession.
