Amazing campaign! Amazing teeth!

The ADA's new national campaign is driving amazing patients to find you!

View Now!

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.


ADA 2016

Continue the Conversation at ADA 2016

Time is running out! Beat the deadline and register for ADA 2016 – America’s Dental Meeting® to save big before September 16.

Incomparable CE options will still be available for a great value, but once the advance deadline passes, registration and individual course fees will increase. While prices are still low, consider bringing additional team members to the meeting, which will be held October 20-24 in Denver.

Campfire Sessions

Continue the conversation with group Campfire Sessions located throughout the Convention Center. The sessions allow you to dive deeper into the topics that are of most interest to you. Join a panel of leading experts for a peer-to-peer discussion in a moderated, small group discussion. Bring questions, case examples and subject matter theories of your own to share with the group in this informal learning environment.
