As president of the Florida Dental Association (FDA), I invite you to join your colleagues and keep your profession strong. Together, we can protect our practices and patients in this volatile economic environment. The new online Invitation Kit will introduce you to the numerous benefits that members of the FDA enjoy. Please take a moment to review the video testimonials from fellow colleagues, which will help you understand important information about the benefits, resources and discounts available to you as a member.
Changes are coming to health care! You could choose to hope that the profession will fare well OR you can actively support the FDA and American Dental Association (ADA) to make sure your interests in your chosen career are protected. Membership in organized dentistry represents your commitment to the dental profession and high ethical standards to your patients. Most importantly, membership sends a strong message to legislators and the public that we are a strong, unified profession.
The FDA is open to licensed dentists in Florida and represents the profession to governmental, regulatory, third-party and other dental-related entities. When you join the FDA, you also join the ADA and one of Florida’s six component (regional) dental associations. The FDA is the middle tier of what we call the “tripartite” system.
FDA membership benefits include free pre-registration to our annual conference, free online continuing education (CE) courses, the FDA peer review program, delegable duties information, leadership training, corporate discounts, numerous online resources for scientific and practice management information and award-winning publications, including the Journal of the American Dental Association. Click here for a more complete list.
If, in addition, you choose to join an affiliate (local) association within your regional component, you’ll have access to local CE credits and can meet and enjoy camaraderie with other dentists in your area. While the benefits of membership are great, belonging to a group of people who share common interests, goals and life experiences can make a big difference in your day-to-day practice. Your fellow dentists have proven to be a vital support network in hard times.
The ADA, FDA and local dental societies are a team dedicated to your professional success! Our strength and ability to make a difference in our profession comes from the dedication and unity of our members … and we can’t do it without you.
Join today and put us to work for you!
