Benefits of Membership

There are many great reasons to be part of organized dentistry, and we would love to grow the Fifth District membership base in 2020! You can help in two ways:

- Encourage the associates in your dental practice to become members.
- Notify the Fifth District or KDA when a new dental practice opens up in your area. Better yet, pay a visit and encourage them to become members!

Fifth District members receive all the membership benefits under the umbrella of the KDA and ADA, plus…
- Quality CE offered locally at a discounted rate
- Leadership opportunities beginning on the local level and expanding to state and national levels
- Building camaraderie and networking with local colleagues
- Safety net programs (Peer Review and Emergency Practice Aid)
- Classified advertising through the Fifth District monthly newsletter
- Opportunity to purchase health insurance through the KDA Health Plan
- Eligibility for substantial savings on supplies through The Dentists Supply Company
