Membership can pay for itself if you take advantage of the savings offered by the CDA Enterprises endorsed companies.
The CDA Retirement Solution is a solution for businesses that allows you to offer a retirement plan to your employees, while aiming to reduce your administrative burden, transferring fiduciary risks, and potentially reducing costs. Sponsoring and maintaining a retirement plan can be challenging. The CDA Retirement Solution brings together a team of professionals on your behalf so you can focus on running your business, not your retirement plan.
The CDA prides itself in being a timely news resource for CDA members. Dentists are busy caring for patients and running a practice, so the CDA stays up-to-date on new regulations and current happenings in the dental industry to keep members informed. Learn more.
A central part of the CDA’s mission is to ensure that dental practice is appropriately regulated. In this interest, the CDA monitors relevant regulatory and legislative activities at the federal, state and local levels. Find out what we’re working on.
