Monthly Dues Plan

Convenient and Offered with No Fees

The MDS, the ADA, and your District Dental Society are happy to offer a monthly plan for annual memberships. This means that your dues can be spread equally over the course of the year through a checking account or credit card.

This program is being offered by the MDS with no additional fees or charges. In order to participate, please complete and send in the Dues Authorization Agreement by December 31. Debits to your checking/credit card will be made on or around the same day each month starting in January. In addition, contributions to the MDS-PAC, MDS Foundation, and other voluntary donations can be included as part of your monthly payments.

Monthly Dues Installment Plan Requirements: 
  • Participants must enroll by December 31.
  • This agreement cannot be terminated within the membership year; once started, participants are obligated to finish or pay the year in full. No refunds will be offered.

Tax Information 2022

Dues payments and contributions are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes to the extent that payments are not made to 501(c)(3) organizations.  

United States taxpayers please note: Under tax law, only that portion of an association member’s dues not attributable to lobbying activities is deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense. For 2022, 7.0% of ADA dues, 15.6% of MDS dues, and none of your district dues is allocated to lobbying activities and therefore, nondeductible as a business expense. If you have any questions, please contact the MDS at 800.342.8747.
