Benefits of Membership

The North Carolina Dental Society can help you keep up with professional developments, deal with insurance companies, ensure you are in compliance with state and federal regulations and manage your practice more effectively. 

Membership in the North Carolina Dental Society also confers membership in the American Dental Association and your district dental society. This alliance means that dentistry speaks with one voice at the local and state level and at the national level.
