Life Membership

Members with 30 years of continuous membership or 40 years of total membership become life members upon reaching age 65. Life members are recognized for their lifetime contribution to the professions and receive important discounts on ADA and NMDA programs. On retirement, they receive $0 dues for the rest of their lives.

Retired Membership

Members that have not yet achieved life status prior to retirement receive a significant reduction in dues.


When retiring, members are asked to complete an affadavit to indicate their retirement date and update their contact information. Please complete the form below.
