Benefits of Membership

Get serious about your success by joining the ISDS.

Through ISDS membership, dentists have access to a number of resources to support their practices no matter where they are on their career path. Become a member and take advantage.

Get engaged

Join one of the most active dental advocacy organizations in the country. The ISDS was instrumental in the passage of the Dental Practice Acts, requiring insurers to offer TMJ coverage and an additional benefit, and fluoridation of the public water supply. Have your voice amplified by joining the ISDS.

Get educated

Stay informed on hot topics relative to the dental industry through our award-winning Illinois Dental News. Plus, take advantage of webinars, training and continuing education opportunities to keep your mind, your skills and your practice sharp to better serve your patients.

Get financially savvy

In addition to immediate and tangible discounts on products and services through the ISDS Endorsed program, members have access to career and practice resources to build the career they want with the success they desire.

Based on feedback from ADA surveys of dentists across the country, here’s what your colleagues said they struggle with* and how choosing organized dentistry help make life as a dentist far less complicated.

Payer Solutions

“Dealing with insurance companies has become a tactical game, adding an extra layer of stress on everything.”

When you join, you can get one-on-one issue resolution with tailored advice through the ADA’s Third Party Payer Concierge.

Debt Management Support

“With mounting student debt, I wonder if I’ll ever have the life I imagined.”

Get closer to the life you want with an exclusive, competitive discount on student loan refinancing; members save $33,000 on average.

Clinical Answers

“Am I providing the right treatment options for my patients? Was it wrong to eliminate certain procedures or should I have sought more information based on science?”

A quick search won’t always find trusted, evidence-based clinical resources. Let us do the heavy lifting for you.

Connections to Colleagues

“When I was buying my practice, talking to other dentists who’ve already been through this really helped me.”

Discover a network of colleagues facing many of the same challenges as you.

Choose Organized Dentistry

“In my office; it’s complicated. I’m the CEO, payroll and the office manager all rolled into one. But who’s got my back?”

For support on your most pressing needs: payer issues, clinical information and debt management, choose organized dentistry to focus on what matters to you the most.
