In 2001 the Illinois State Dental Society's House of Delegates unanimously voted to eliminate the $5 dues charge for Illinois dental students, offering complimentary membership in the Society to all Illinois dental students. ISDS recognizes the importance and value of involving dental students in organized dentistry activities early in their career. In addition, ISDS and the Chicago Dental Society jointly pay for Illinois dental students to be members of the American Student Dental Association (ASDA). ASDA membership also provides many valuable benefits to future dentists.
An ISDS student member is entitled to admission to any ISDS annual session, participation in the Society's group insurance programs, a subscription to the Illinois Dental News, and other member services provided by ISDS.
