REFERRAL BOOK FAQ
If you haven’t received it yet, you should be getting your VDA Specialist Referral Book in the mail in the next few days. It will be arriving with the latest edition of the Virginia Dental Journal
. Take a moment to bookmark the online directory
In dentistry, trust and relationships are important and dentists want to know that when they make a patient referral, that their patient will be in good hands.
When you refer a patient to a VDA member specialist, you know that they:
- Have access to the latest CE and professional updates from the VDA and ADA
- Are committed to advancing the profession and upholding high ethical standards
- And that they’ve made a long-term commitment to improving oral healthcare in Virginia
We hope you’ll use the Referral Book to develop new relationships with other VDA members, confirm that the specialists you’re currently referring to are members of the Tripartite, and as a reference for patients who may have a unique issue or live somewhere you don’t yet have a specialist in your personal network.
You can browse listings by both locality and by specialty. If you notice that someone in your referral network is not included in the book, please consider asking them to become a part of the ADA and VDA. As an organization, our voice is strongest as our membership continues to grow.
This is the first year the VDA has produced the Referral Book so please let us know
how you’re using it and what you would like to see in the book next year. We hope that especially at this time when it is more difficult to socialize and participate in study clubs, that you’ll find this new resource valuable.
Data in the book was current in the ADA’s database as of April 1, 2021. The VDA team has made every effort to publish accurate information for each member and have communicated with members to alert them of their listing.
