Retired members are active members who are retired and no longer earning an income from private practice, employment as faculty of a dental school, as a dental administrator or consultant, or any activity in which a license to practice dentistry is required.
To qualify for Retired Membership Status, complete the Affidavit for Retired Membership and submit for approval to your local component president. If approved, the component will send the form to ISDS for approval. The form will then be forwarded to the American Dental Association for final approval. If the affidavit is approved at all three levels, an ADA staff member will notify the member by letter regarding the approval.
