Benefits of Membership
Information is crucial to the practice of dentistry. From research on new materials and techniques to the latest OSHA guidelines, organized dentistry is an invaluable resource for staying informed.
Organized dentistry has also proven to be a powerhouse as an advocate for the dental profession; it has successfully defended the rights of dentists against unfair legislation and against unfair policies used by insurance companies.
