Membership in the Ohio Dental Association has many benefits designed not only to help dentists in their daily practice, but also to further the development of the dental profession.
Some of the areas in which the ODA serves members include:
The ODA provides career and practice information that encompasses issues facing the profession of dentistry, practice trends, legalities and more.
The public service department addresses oral health issues, trends and areas of concern through programs that benefit membership and Ohio consumers.
The ODA advocates on behalf of Ohio’s dentists. Each year, ODA leaders, lobbyists and legal counsel track dozens of bills and numerous regulations that impact the practice of dentistry.
Approximately 75 percent of all practicing dentists in Ohio are members of the ODA. This strong membership base allows the ODA Services Corporation (ODASC) to negotiate discounts on services, products and programs for the home and office, such as:
- Workers Comp. (BWC Group Rating)
