Improving the Oral Health of the Public and the Professional Development of ASDA Members
The Arkansas State Dental Association (ASDA) is a voluntary membership organization comprised of licensed dentists in the State of Arkansas. ASDA represents and supports the dental profession in its efforts to provide high quality, ethical oral health care to the public.
When you become a member of the ASDA, you are making a sound financial investment in your future. Organized dentistry protects your interests-as well as those of your patients-ensuring that you can continue to offer the highest quality dental care available. Now, more than ever, dentistry faces challenges from insurance companies, regulatory agencies and government encroachment. ASDA can and does help; just ask any of our more than 1,000 members. They’ll tell you to join the Arkansas State Dental Association. It’s worth it!
