The Virginia Dental Association (VDA) is a non-profit organization of dentists committed to enhancing the professional lives of our members - 3,700 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.


CDC Releases New Infection Prevention Guidelines

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on March 29 released new guidelines on infection prevention for dental settings. These guidelines are not intended to replace existing ones, CDC officials said, but to supplement them. One new guideline, for instance, notes “the importance of having one person in every dental office assigned as the infection prevention coordinator.” The new publication, “Summary of Infection Prevention Practices for Dental Settings: Basic Expectations for Safe Care,” is online here.

More information is available in a March 30 ADA News story.
