Why Should I See an MDA Member Dentist?

Members of the Mississippi Dental Association seek to be “involved” in their profession by staying informed and making a special commitment to uphold the ethical code, practice standards and mission of the Mississippi Dental Association. An MDA member dentist has agreed to sustain and improve the oral health of the people in Mississippi by maintaining a relevant and effective dental profession.

The Mississippi Dental Association keeps our dentist members informed of the latest scientific developments and recommendations from the American Dental Association and other regulatory agencies and organizations that are connected to dentistry.

All licensed Mississippi dentists are required to obtain 40 hours of certified continuing education every two years for re-licensure. The Mississippi Dental Association works to provide programs that promote high clinical standards, advancements in dental practice techniques and also Mississippi specific regulatory requirements for dentists. Because our association annually promotes and provides several CE opportunities for our dentists on a wide range of educational topics at seminars throughout the state and at an annual conference, many members acquire more than the state-required CE hours.

When you choose to see an MDA/ADA member dentist, you’re selecting a dentist who has agreed to the ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct. Every MDA/ADA member dentist makes a professional promise to put your health and well-being first, and is committed to dealing with you ethically and honestly.
