Calls to the VDA office suggest a possible ADA Dues payment scam.  We've seen this come up every few years, a VDA member gets a call or email suggesting that they have not paid their ADA membership dues.  The communication will direct the member to a web address to make the payment. 

Currently, the ADA/VDA is NOT issuing any calls to members to collect dues.  If you have any questions regarding your payment status, please contact our Director of Membership, Leslie Pinkston at pinkston@vadental.org or 804-523-2189.
