WDA Membership


Membership in the American Dental Association, WDA and your local dental society represents a powerful commitment on your part to continued growth as a professional, as an individual and as a dentist.

Your membership, and the financial support it creates, is critical to the efforts that take place on your behalf.



Our research indicated dental hygienists want to be more involved in their profession and help set the future direction of patient care. The WDA believes dental hygienists should be involved.
