Interested in Getting Involved in Leadership?
The ADA wants to better understand and broaden the pool of dentists who may be interested in a leadership role at the ADA. This form also captures interest in other ways of volunteering - such as being featured in ADA publications or be considered for research projects. Diversifying leadership is one of the ADA's Diversity & Inclusion goals. New dentists*, dentists from diverse backgrounds, and non-owners are encouraged to submit their information. Complete our new Volunteer Interest form today!
*Dentists who graduated from dental school less than 10 years ago.
The ADA has two committees dedicated to developing and reviewing standards for a changing industry. The ADA Standards Committee on Dental Products and the ADA Standards Committee on Dental Informatics include working groups of volunteers from the profession, the industry, academia and government. Apply to provide your input and help advance future standards.
