The CDA President's Award is awarded annually to a graduating student in every Canadian dental faculty. The award recipients are selected by each faculty's Awards Committee and must be CDA student members.

Each recipient is a graduating dental student who, over his/her undergraduate years, has shown outstanding qualities of leadership, scholarship, character, and humanity and who may be expected to have a distinguished career in the dental profession and society at large.
