What is CDF?
The Christian Dental fellowship is an inter-denominational association of Christians working in dentistry. Our aim is to provide an active Christian influence in the dental profession by:
- Uniting and equipping Christian dentists to live out their Christian faith in life and work
- Encouraging and supporting dental students and dental care professionals in their training and those who have recently qualified
- Offering practical and spiritual support to Mission Partners throughout the world, helping to meet specific needs.
What we do: Overseas
CDF has several Mission Partners working in dentistry overseas. CDF supports both prayerfully and financially. Mission partners are working in many areas of the world.
What we do: at home
Organised informal meetings held around the country, usually in the spring time.
