Things to know:

Your student membership expires when you graduate.

At that point, you need to apply for a TDA membership. The TDA will host a Signing Day at your school during the end of your fourth year. At that event, you will fill out and sign your application for NTDA. Please contact your ASDA leaders for the dates this year.

Why should you sign up at Signing Day?

We need your support of organized dentistry AND if you sign up during the year you graduate, you are enrolled in our new graduate reduced dues structure.

June - December of graduating year = $0 dues
1st Full Year Out of School = $0 dues
2nd Full Year Out of School = 50% off regular dues
