If you graduated from Dental School less than 10 years ago, the ADA considers you a new dentist. Below are some new dentist resources to help make the transition from dental student to dentist a little smoother.
ADA Reduced Dues Program
Dues are $0 at the national level in your first year after of dental school and, if you remain a member, reduced rates continue!
If you earned your DDS or DMD in 2023, your year 1 is 2024.
Year 1: You pay $0 in dues.
Year 2: You pay 50% of full national dues.
Year 3 and thereafter: You pay the full national dues amount.
Recent graduates who enter into a graduate or residency training program within the five years following dental school graduation pay the graduate student rate of $0 a year during the program, and are eligible to either begin or resume the Reduced Dues Program schedule upon completion of their training.
