The Swedish Dental Association (SDA) organizes all dentists in Sweden. It deals with issues affecting the role of dentists in the community, professional ethics, education and science. Professional skills, a high quality of treatment and patient care are key concepts.
Established in 1908, the Swedish Dental Association (SDA) currently has some 7 000 members, of whom some 4 000 practice in the Public Dental Service and 1 500 are private practitioners. Approximately 250 teachers at the four dental faculties and 700 dental students are also members. The number of female members is 45 percent.
The overall goal of the Swedish Dental Association is to work to promote education, knowledge, quality and expertise among Swedish dentists and Swedish dental healthcare. To achieve this goal, the association has singled out a number of important areas of focus - the following are a few examples:
- Ethics- read the Ethical Code (pdf) of the Swedish Dental Association.
- International issues
- Odontological research and development
The association publishes the journal Tandläkartidningen (The Journal of the SDA), 15 times a year as well as the Swedish Dental Journal. The latter is published in English 4 times a year and its goal is to present Swedish odontological research.
