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.



House action encourages dentists to promote bone marrow matching programs

Here’s an easy way to get involved. Request or promote free swab kits from Delete Blood Cancer (DKMS) and start making an impact today!   Everyone swabbed is entered into the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry.
