Member Get A Member Rewards

Most members say they are likely to refer membership to their colleagues, so this is your opportunity!


  • Any ADA member dentist is eligible to participate as a recruiter.

  • Graduate student membership is $30/annually and they are eligible for the Member-Get-A-Member incentive.

  • The following are not eligible for referral incentives:

    • Renewals (someone who was a member in 2017) or transfers

    • Complimentary memberships

    • Any member who would pay $0 at the national level in 2017 (including a dentist who graduated from dental school in 2016 and is eligible for the Reduced Dues Program in 2018.)

How to Participate

  • Member recruiters are required to let the ADA know the name of the new member by completing a recruiter’s form for each member recruited. Just enter your name, ADA number, contact information and the name of the dentist you recruited. You are also encouraged to have the member you recruit indicate your name as sponsor on the membership application.

  • ADA member recruiters will receive an email notification after the dentist referred has been accepted into membership. Incentives will be awarded at the end of each quarter (March, June and September).

  • In the case of identical referrals made by multiple member recruiters, only the first recruiter to complete the form will be eligible for the incentive.

  • A $100 gift card will be awarded for each new, active member recruited who pays national dues in 2018 for up to five (5) new active members ($500 in gift cards). No substitutions for the gift card(s) will be made.

  • A member recruiter may decline the incentive and ADA will contribute $100 to the ADA Foundation. Member recruiters understand that this declined incentive does not represent taxable income to the member recruiter, and therefore is not eligible as a tax deduction for the recruiter.

    The ADA Member-Get-A-Member program is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations, and is void where prohibited by law.
