The MSDA Endorsed Program was started by MSDA for two main reasons:
- To provide MSDA members with discounted products/services from reliable companies
- To assist MSDA in stabilizing the budget and making the association less dependent on dues revenue
The program is overseen by a board, made up of member dentists, who find, vet, negotiate, and contract vendors that are deemed important/necessary for dentists to practice.
These vendors provide their products and services at discounted rates to MSDA Members. The cost savings from these vendors could potentially equal or exceed the cost of your MSDA membership dues!
For every member dentist that utilizes these vendors, a portion of that business is returned to MSDA and helps to stabilize dues and the MSDA budget. Presently, MSDA Endorsed contributes 10% of the MSDA annual operating budget!
