Membership Fees


Value is important. Saving you money, providing the best services and assisting you with the business of being a dentist are some of the ways we demonstrate that value.  Lobbying on your behalf at the national, state and local level for the benefit of patients and the profession is perhaps the highest value proposition, and one that is underappreciated as far as its criticality. 

Your total dues payment includes membership in the American Dental Association, the New York State Dental Association, and the Suffolk County Dental Society.  This provides you access to every benefit, at every level.

2024 Membership Dues for Full Active Licensed Members

Annual Dues at the Suffolk, State, and National Levels: 

Total - $1639

Dues are billed annually by NYSDA and payment plans are available. You can renew your membership for the upcoming year before, on, or after January 1st. A lapse in membership terminates benefits including things like certain insurance policies and the Legal Protection Plan.  However, if you have a particular hardship we are here to listen and do what we can to help you.  Email us or give us a ring to discuss at 631-232-1400.
