Benefits of Fellowship

FRCDC designation

Set yourself apart from your colleagues – by using the FRCDC designation, you are indicating the superior level of commitment and dedication you have for your specialty. As a Fellow, you will be listed in the RCDC Membership Register on our website, which is open for consultation to all dental professionals and members of the public.

Support of excellence in dental specialties

Thanks to the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, you have access to a network of dental specialists who share your passion for their work. There is always strength in numbers, and RCDC is the largest group of dental specialists in Canada.

Continuing Education Webinars

Once a month, join us for a live webinar on the most relevant topics at the cutting edge of dental specialties. These webinars are free for our Fellows and Members, and allow you to earn continuing education credits with your provincial regulatory body. Click here for more information.
