Recruit a new member, get $200

Dentists who refer a new member to CDA now can receive a $100 check from CDA and a $100 American Express gift card from the ADA.

The $200 total reward is part of the Member Get a Member campaign, which provides incentives for every CDA dentist who refers a new member to the tripartite membership (for a total of $1,000 maximum per referring member).

The combined campaign lasts through Sept. 30, after which time members will still receive $100 from CDA.

A growing ADA and CDA means greater recognition for the dental profession, more resources and support for members and a stronger voice in the policy arena in Washington D.C. and Sacramento. The incentive program is a result of CDA leadership reaching out to members for input on the program.

To receive credit for a referral, an applicant must add the name of the member who referred them to membership on a CDA membership application. The referring member may also enter the name of the dentist they referred on the recruiter’s form at Once the referred member pays their dues, the referral incentives are mailed to the referring dentist.
There are many advantages to being a part of organized dentistry, but here are a few key benefits:

  • Legislative advocacy;
  • CDA Presents continuing education — free admission for the San Francisco and Anaheim meetings;
  • TDIC insurance — member-only access and risk management hotline;
  • Practice support services —; and
  • CDA publications.

Here are some tips on recruiting a new member:

  • Seek any colleague who is not currently a tripartite member.
  • Share the benefits and services of the ADA, CDA and local dental societies.
  • Ask a colleague to include your name on the membership application or, better yet, give them an application with your name on it. Applications are available online at

To find out if a dentist is a current tripartite member, visit under “Find a CDA Dentist.” In addition, updated nonmember lists are available through local component offices.
