The Value of Membership

MDS Is Membership that Matters!

Ten reasons to be a member of the MDS:

1. Interact with colleagues. Despite the increase in email and Web technology for communication purposes, face-to-face interaction is not extinct. The MDS, the ADA, and your local district are primary resources to connect with colleagues to discuss clinical and management issues that affect dentistry or your practice.
