Pacific Basin Dental Association

The Pacific Basin Dental Association (PBDA) objectives include promoting good oral health and linking oral health with the Healthy Islands vision, facilitating improvements in oral health services, carrying out continuing education, improving networking among dental professionals, and strengthening surveillance.
