House of Delegates
The House of Delegates, as the legislative and governing body, is the supreme authority in the American Dental Association. As such, it speaks for the more than 158,000 dentist members of the Association and for the dental profession in the United States. The 480 members of the House of Delegates are chosen by the 53 constituent societies, the five federal dental services and the American Student Dental Association.
The House meets once a year, during the ADA Annual Meeting, usually held in October. The officers of the House are the Speaker and the Secretary. The Executive Director of the Association serves as Secretary of the House of Delegates.
