Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

WHY CHOOSE A MEMBER DENTIST?

As a Tidewater Dental Association member, a dentist is part of a professional association whose mission is to promote the art and science of dentistry and to foster professional relations among dentists. They strive to safeguard the interest of the profession as well as the public.

Each member dentist agrees to adhere to high ethical standards of conduct. These standards are embodied in the American Dental Association Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct. The Tidewater Dental Association (TDA), the Virginia Dental Association (VDA), and the American Dental Association (ADA) help members keep current with the latest information affecting dentistry to provide the best-possible patient care.

IS THIS A DENTAL OFFICE?

No, the Tidewater Dental Association is not a dental office. We are a professional organization of dentists. The Tidewater Dental Association (TDA) is part of the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Virginia Dental Association (VDA). Dentists who are members of the TDA are also members of those organizations.
