Join the VDA

During the storm, the only safe harbor is one we create by working together.

I am very excited to tell you that your VDA leaders and staff are in the midst of creating a totally new culture surrounding how we  approach our membership efforts. It will involve being more defined by data, value, and ease of membership. Our goal is to help each of you be more successful in your careers as dentist, promote both your personal reputation as a dentist and as well as the reputation of the Association.

So with this in mind, we are happy to share easier ways to joining and renewing your membership, some of which you may even find easier on your pocket book. With this year's dues statement you can pay by mail, phone, or use the convenience of our website. In addition, you can opt to pay dues in one of three ways:

  1. In one payment
  2. One payment with automatic renewal for future years
  3. 10 monthly(recurring) payments with automatic renewal in future years

With so many options, we hope you will find joining or renewing your membership easier than ever.

It's time to take advantage of these new options, and join or renew your membership
