2018 Virginia Meeting Registration is OPEN

Welcome to the Virginia Dental Association!

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

Each year, nearly 14,000 patients will need bone marrow transplants and sadly less than half will get them.

Back in 2012 the ADA House encouraged dentists to promote bone marrow matching programs – this resolution was renewed in 2016.

Check out the ADA News article about a dentist who took his personal crusade to the next level by organizing bone marrow donor drives in a statewide program sponsored by his state dental association.

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.
