Join the ADTA in its mission to ensure all Americans have access to high-quality oral health. How can you become a part of the solution? By becoming a member, donor, volunteer, advertiser, sponsor, or all of the above! You can play an essential role in increasing access to oral health care for the millions of Americans living in dental health professional shortage areas.

Become a DonorAccording to Dentistry Today, the U.S. dental market generated $154.96 billion in 2023. However, most of this revenue does not support underserved populations. Many corporations and foundations do not prioritize oral health in the United States, making it a grossly underserved area of charitable giving. That's why the ADTA needs your support!

What does a donation to the ADTA support?

  • Your donation supports advocacy efforts to increase access to healthcare for underserved populations in dental health professional shortage areas throughout the United States.
  • Your donation enables the ADTA to educate patients about alternative oral health care, such as minimally invasive dentistry/minimally invasive care, focusing on preventative measures that reduce anxiety and trauma for pediatric and geriatric patients. 
  • Your donation educates communities about dental therapy's economic and financial advantages, such as recruiting community members to become dental therapists focusing on care that puts patients first.
  • Your donation contributes to the technical support the ADTA provides to individuals and organizations advancing dental therapy in their communities. 
  • Your donation contributes to research. As a new profession in the U.S., research furthers the education and knowledge of dental therapy's contributions to the oral healthcare landscape. 
  • Your donation allows the ADTA to provide scholarships to dental therapy students to attend the ADTA Annual Conference, where they interact, share knowledge, and grow their support network with practicing dentists, hygienists, and fellow dental therapists.
