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 a 90% of the practicing dentists in the state as members.
The MDA provides a variety of services to its members, including continuing education opportunities, legislative and regulatory advocacy, and benefits such as group health insurance and practice-enhancing services.
The ADA and MDA offer reduced dues for certain categories of dentists, including recent graduates, retired dentists and Life members. For more information about joining, a dentist should contact the MDA Central Office at 207-622-7900. MDA staff will verify the proper dues rate and forward a membership application with instructions for completion and submission.
