How to Join TDA

By becoming a member of organized dentistry, you’re ensuring that your voice and the needs of the profession are being represented on every level. Whether you are looking for education, practice support, protection, or for a stronger voice in government, you’ve come to the right place.   It’s now easier than ever to become a TDA tripartite member. You are eligible if you are a licensed dentist in Texas, a full-time faculty member at one of the three Texas dental schools, or a Texas dentist serving full-time military duty. One application handles your membership for ADA, TDA and your local society. 

It’s easy to apply for membership!

  1. Complete the on-line application.
  2. Once your application is received, our Membership Coordinator will be in touch with you to provide you with a customized dues quote.  Dues vary in your local dental societies.
  3. Once your dues are received, you will become an Interim Member until the local dental society selection process is complete.
  4. After the selection process is complete, you will receive a new Member Packet that will contain a membership certificate and information on member services and a current directory of TDA members.
