What is the New Dentist Committee?

The New Dentist Committee consists of members that have received their D.D.S. or D.M.D. degree less than ten years before the time of selection. All members are welcome to participate in New Dentist Committee initiatives and activities. 

The role of the New Dentist Committee:

2. Advocate to the Board of Directors on the perspectives of the new dentist in the development of policies, programs, benefits and services.

3. Identify the needs and concerns of new graduate dentists and make recommendations for any programs to assist with their transition to practice.

Did you know...

The ADA and the TDA created the Reduced Dues Program to recognize that recent graduates need some time to get settled into their profession. As a result, recent graduates are able to take advantage of reduced membership dues. In order to take advantage of this dues structure you must join the tripartite (Texas Dental Association, American Dental Association and SADDS) within one year of graduation. If you would like to speak to someone about this program, please contact the TDA Member Services Department at 512-443-3675 and either choose option 2 for Membership or extension 134.
