Information for Federal Dental Services (FDS)

Support your profession

"I am an ADA member because I believe being a member is vital to my profession."

In a recent survey of ADA federal dentist members, about 60 percent said the most important reason they joined the ADA was to support their profession, followed by supporting the ADA's advocacy goals on behalf of federal dentists.

When you become a member of the ADA, you'll see quickly that the support the ADA provides to all federal dentists goes very deep. From advocacy to practice and science to CE, the ADA stands ready to support you, no matter where your service may take you.

Whether you're in the military, VA, U.S. Public Health Service or other federal employment, you play a vital role in the dental profession. If you are not currently a member, we encourage you to apply for Federal Dental Services (FDS) membership today.

"I am an ADA member because the ADA offers great clinical Information and practice resources."
