International Activities

The American Dental Association is comprised of 157,000 ADA members in the United States and nearly 3,000 Affiliate Members, who are dentists living and practicing outside the U.S.

There are no boundaries to the many benefits of membership in the ADA, including access to leading science and technology, internationally-recognized continuing education courses and connecting with colleagues in all corners of the globe. 

As a result of the ADA’s membership in the FDI World Dental Federation, all ADA members join a network of more than 1 million dentists from 200 countries worldwide. Through international collaboration, the ADA participates in development of international policy and standards as well as works with national dental societies and organizations in other countries to strengthen the profession and protect the public. The FDI Annual World Dental Congress offers an opportunity to gather with colleagues from around the world and discuss issues of emerging importance in global oral health.

Please select if you are a dental professional in the United States or in a country outside of the United States to access the programs and services available to you from the ADA.
