Advance the Dental Profession

There is no better way to support the dental profession than becoming actively involved in your PDA membership. PDA members can get involved in many ways, including donating supplies to a local clinic, providing treatment to a needy child or joining a PDA committee, task force or initiative to help achieve the goals of organized dentistry.

By getting involved, PDA members become more aware of the pertinent issues facing the dental profession and help advance the profession. Get involved today!
