Four out of five dentists are members of the American Dental Association, the nation’s leading dental organization. Choosing to become a member can benefit your career in multiple ways, including increased credibility, networking opportunities, and access to services and resources. Learn more about the benefits of becoming an ADA member.

Dentistry is a business

If you want your dental practice to perform maximally, it’s important to remember that while dentistry is a service to your community, a medical practice is only successful if you treat it like a business.

All dental professionals want to receive the greatest possible return on their work. Just as with other businesses, receiving support and credibility through a membership association can mean a significant boost in success. With constantly-increasing competition in the field, and higher rates of educational debt, it can be invaluable to have a group to advocate on your behalf when needed.

For dentists who have been practicing for between 8 to 20 years and are going through practice management issues, the ADA has an enormous wealth of information to help.

Finally, when patients are choosing a dentist, they know that ADA members have access to all the most up-to-date resources and information on modern dentistry.

Benefits of becoming an ADA member

With over 150,000 members, the American Dental Association is the largest dental organization in the entire United States. Its stated goal is to promote public oral health and encourage ethical and scientifically rigorous dentistry.

The ADA also has a research and extension branch that conducts studies on the effectiveness of various oral health products. This is where the “ADA seal of approval” often seen on toothbrushes and toothpaste comes from: companies can submit their products for review and the ADA will trial the company’s claims.

Importantly, the ADA verifies and certifies the legitimacy of individual dentists and practices, and offers a broad range of advocacy services aimed at benefiting dentists and their patients alike. Continuing education, testing and qualifications for licensing, and practive management tools and resources are just a few benefits of becoming an ADA member.
