Membership Benefits for Dentists

Why Should I Join Organized Dentistry?

Together, we thrive. 

Because membership in the ADA, the KDA and your local component means you have made a powerful commitment to grow as a professional, an individual and a dentist.

  • The KDA and ADA provide dentists with active representation to both the state and federal legislatures. We also organize and educate our dentists in advocating for themselves, the profession of dentistry, and the oral health of their communities.

  • The ADA’s Practice Transitions program (ADAPT) uses practice philosophies and goals to match established dentists looking to either hire associates or sell their practice with dentists in search of opportunities, either for employment or to purchase a practice of their own.
