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.
