I'm a recent graduate. Do I pay full dues?
New graduates are offered reduced dues for four years following completion of dental training. In your first following graduation from dental school, annual dues for your district, MDS, and ADA are waived entirely. In your second year, you receive a 75% discount off of the full dues; in your third year you receive a 50% discount; and in your fourth year you receive a 25%discount. In order to receive the new dentist discounts, you must have maintained membership in the ADA while you were in dental school.
