CDAnet is the service that enables dentists to send patients' dental benefit claims to insurance companies electronically.  A CDAnet subscription authorizes a dentist to send claims electronically from a particular office.  When you join a dental office, it is likely that one of the first things you will be asked to do is subscribe to CDAnet and to the ITRANS Claim Service, CDA's complementary service that enables electronic claims to be transmitted securely on the internet. CDAnet and ITRANs are member services that are only available to members of their provincial/territorial dental associations, or in Quebec, members of CDA.
