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.


ADA Visa Rewards Card

ADA Visa from U.S. Bank Gets New Look, Enhanced Benefits

ADA Business Resources announced July 10 that the ADA Preferred Rewards Visa Signature Card from U.S. Bank now boasts a new look and enhanced benefits and perks for cardholders.

New applicants can earn 20,000 bonus points after they spend $5,000 on eligible purchases (net of credits/returns) in the first 90 days, according to ADA Business Resources. In addition, existing cardholders will be eligible to earn 20,000 bonus points after they spend $125,000 per calendar year and will no longer be charged foreign transaction fees.

The ADA Preferred Rewards Visa card does not charge an annual fee and allows for points to be redeemed for travel on over 150 airlines with no blackout dates. The card, which is co-endorsed by 40 state dental societies, including the Virginia Dental Association, also still offers two reward points per net $1 spent on all eligible state society purchases and five rewards points per net $1 spent on ADA products, such as the CDT Code book or registration for ADA 2017 in Atlanta.

According to ADA Business Resources, the average ADA Visa cardholder redeems approximately 54,788 points per year. These points can be redeemed for over $500 worth of gift certificates, cash back or merchandise. When redeemed on travel, members can buy a plane ticket with average real value of over $800, which is equivalent to earning 1.7 points per $1 spent.

All new card applicants will receive the card with the new artwork effective immediately. Existing cardholders are eligible for the new benefits immediately and can expect to be reissued the new card in October.
