Benefits of TDA Membership

Membership has it's benefits!

The Tidewater Dental Association (TDA), the American Dental Association, and the Virginia Dental Association work together to promote the art and science of dentistry, educate the public on oral health issues, and support the profession of dentistry.  They strive to keep dentists and patients informed and protected.

Information is crucial to the practice of dentistry.  Whether it be research on new materials and techniques or the latest OSHA guidelines, membership is a great way to stay informed.

As a tripartite organization, we are a proven powerhouse working as advocates for the dental profession. We have successfully defended the rights of dentists against unfair legislation and against insurance companies.

Benefits at the local level:

  1. Legislative Committee (addresses issues affecting the dental profession)
  2. Patient Relations/Peer Review Committee (mediation - hearing patient disputes)

  4. Quarterly Newsletter (Tide-Dent News)
  5. Socials

  7. Volunteer Opportunities
