A consistent member and participant in the Ontario Dental Association, Dr. Leslie Griesdorf DDS was by extension a member in the Canadian Dental Association due to his local professional society in Toronto. Founded by Dr. Barnabas Day in 1867, the Ontario Dental Association is a professional dentists’ association which maintains its own membership in the Canadian Dental Association while representing on a local level the interests of dental professionals before the Ontario government and with insurance companies. The Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario is the regulatory body for the dental profession in Ontario.
Dr. Leslie Griesdorf practised in a rotating dental internship in the first months after his graduation from dental school. Ultimately however, Griesdorf opted to practice dental surgery as his primary focus, enjoying a thriving dental practice and career for over 30 years in Toronto.
