Membership Info

ADA and ASDA Student Membership - Most dental students are members of the ADA and ASDA. You join both organizations at the same time. Members receive special benefits and resources to support you during school and help you prepare for your dental career. Learn more about your ADA student membership. You can find information on ASDA at ASDAnet.org.

Stay in touch with the ADA after graduation. Contact us at studentaffairs@ada.org or complete the Member Profile.

ADA Membership After Graduation - After graduation, you can continue your membership with the ADA. The first year is free and most state and local societies also offer reduced dues. If you’re going into a residency, you receive a special student rate and then pick up the free year after your program. Get on your feet and connect with your professional association to help you get there. Learn more
