Searching for health insurance options?  The ADA can help!

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 or 804-523-2189.
