A new dentist is a dentist who graduated from dental school fewer than 10 years ago.
In 2014, a new dentist is defined as a dentist who earned their doctor of dental surgery degree or doctor of dental medicine degree during 2005 or after.
Membership is based on the calendar year. The balance of the year you graduate is free upon completion of a tripartite membership application. After that, your Wisconsin Dental Association dues are:
- Year 1 – $0
- Year 2 – 25 percent of full active dues
- Year 3 – 50 percent of full active dues
- Year 4 – 75 percent of full active dues
- Year 5 and thereafter – 100 percent of full active dues
Continuing your education? Join the American Dental Association directly for only $30 per year as a graduate student member. The reduced dues program goes “on hold” until you enter practice.
