The Virginia Dental Association (VDA) is a non-profit organization of dentists committed to enhancing the professional lives of our members - 3,500 of the best and brightest dentistry has to offer.  Together, we champion better oral health care for all Virginians.

It’s been ​over 145 years since a small group of nine dentists founded the "Virginia State Dental Association". Since then we’ve grown to become a constant trusted resource for ​Virginia dentists and their patients.

Welcome. We’re glad you’re here.

Laws may prohibit texting and calling patients

The ADA Center for Professional Success offers tips on texting and calling patients and information on federal laws that may prohibit such acts. 

Dentists may need to obtain written consent and take other steps to avoid liability and penalties under federal laws like the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. The laws were created so consumers wouldn't receive unwanted communications, such as telemarketing calls, but the laws may prevent dentists from using traditional methods to contact their patients. 

Dental practices are among the businesses that have already been sued for violating these laws. Individuals can sue for up to $1,500 for every phone call or text that violates the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.  

Visit Success.ADA.org to see a sample consent form dentists can provide patients and to read some tips on how dentists can help stay in communication with their patients within the law.
