Renew Your MSDA Membership
Membership dues should be remitted in full or through an installment payment plan established by Jan. 1st of each calendar year. If dues have not been paid in full or an installment payment plan is not established, members will discontinue receiving tripartite membership benefits as of Mar. 31st of each calendar year.
For questions about your membership dues statement, contact MSDA Membership.
MSDA Members have options for paying membership dues online:
PAY IN FULL – Simply use your ADA login information to pay your membership dues.
What do you do if you do not remember you ADA User ID or password? You can retrieve and/or reset your User ID and/or password at “I forgot my User ID or password.”
DUES INSTALLMENT PAYMENT PLANS- MSDA offers monthly installment payment plans.
There is no additional fee to pay your dues through an installment payment plan. You can opt into the installment plan options when you pay online or contact MSDA Membership for assistance.
No refunds will be provided for cancelled memberships.
By enrolling in a membership, the “membership year” spans a calendar year from January through December and not a 12-month period from the date of enrollment. If plan payments are cancelled before dues are paid in full for the current year, membership will be cancelled and all benefits will cease.
After you login, update your contact information online under "My ADA."
We strongly encourage you update your contact Information, including your profile picture. This is used for mail and email correspondence and for the online ‘Find A Dentist’ directory, which now is the same across national, state and local websites. If you do not include a photo in your profile, an avatar like the one below will appear and your profile will appear lower in ranking when a potential patient searches for a dentist in your area.
