Why should you become a member of the Nebraska Dental Association? Because membership in your professional association benefits YOU! If you have any questions, please contact the NDA central office at 402-476-1704 or 1-888-789-2614.

Membership gives you:

Peer Review - Dedicated members confidentially mediate dentist/patient grievances without costly litigation saving you thousands in attorney fees;

Member only services - Insurance programs and financial services.

Legislative Voice - The NDA maintains active contact with legislators and our lobbyists and legislative committee strengthens the voice of organized dentistry in Nebraska, all of which ultimately affect YOUR practice of dentistry in Nebraska;

A common misconception by dental students is that they are automatically moved into membership with the ADA, NDA, and their local district. This is not the case. Graduates from dental school must complete a membership application before their membership becomes effective. Please fill out and return the Membership Application linked above, to the NDA office. Once it is processed, and any dues are paid, your membership will be complete.

Please note that recent graduates enjoy graduated dues payments with the ADA Reduced Dues Program. The ADA will not charge any dues for the first full year following dental school graduation. In the second year, dues are 25% of full active dues; in the third year, dues are 50% of full active dues; and in the fourth year, dues are 75% of active dues. The Nebraska Dental Association offers similar reductions, and the program requires continuous membership upon graduation.
