To qualify for active membership in the Maine Dental Association, a dentist must be licensed and practicing in Maine. Membership is tripartite, meaning dentists must join at the local, state, and national level at the same time. Membership is voluntary, and the MDA traditionally has over 80% of the practicing dentists in the state as members.
The MDA provides a variety of services to its members, including continuing education, legislative and regulatory advocacy, networking opportunities, practice-enhancing guidance and services, and more.
The ADA and MDA offer reduced dues for certain categories of dentists, including recent graduates and retired dentists. For more information about joining, a dentist should contact the MDA Office at (207) 622-7900. MDA staff will verify the proper dues rate and forward a membership application with instructions for completion and submission.
