Dental Professionals Association

The DPA is a professional body that is tasked with empowering its members to realise their full potential. This is done through a consistent advocacy and engagement with external stakeholder, especially government institutions, regulatory bodies, universities and healthcare funders.

What we do

In the DPA, you are never alone

The DPA is a community that is focused on mentorship. These range from practice management, entrepreneurship, continuous professional development, social support, friendship and solidarity.


The history of the DPA can be traced to the induction of the first cohort of Dental Therapy students in 1975, at the Madikoti Advanced College of Technology, at Seshego. Prior to that, the training of black people as dentists was illegal under the apartheid legislation, except by a special permission by the Minister of Education.


Details coming soon.
