Membership in the ADA, TDA and Capital Area Dental Society

Thank you for your Membership in the ADA, TDA and Capital Area Dental Society!

By now, you should have received your 2020 Annual Dues Statement in the mail.  TDA offers three easy ways to pay – you can mail a check or your credit card information to the TDA, you can call the TDA to pay over the phone with a credit card or you can quickly and easily pay online today!
Can’t pay your dues in one lump sum?  TDA offers PAYMENT OPTIONS for all members.  The extended dues payment plan allows members to pay 2020 dues starting in January with monthly payments through October.  Members can also choose a 3-month plan paying 2020 dues from January through March. To take advantage of the maximum number of payments offered, members must sign up online by January 10, 2020.

TDA is also able to offer AUTO-RENEWAL for all members!  As you pay your 2020 dues you can choose to auto-renew for 2021.

It’s EASY to pay online!  Visit tda.org, login and then click on the “Membership Renewal” button located just beneath Access My Profile.  Once you have reviewed the mandatory and voluntary dues owed (Steps 1 and 2), you will come to a screen that allows you to enter your credit card information (Step 3 Order Summary and Payment).  On the Order Summary and Payment screen you will see three options for renewal which are Pay in Full, Pay in Installments or Pay with Auto-Renew (in full or in payment plans).  If you select an installment plan option, you will see the dates and payment amounts available for that plan.

Again, we thank you for your membership in the ADA, TDA and Capital Area Dental Society!

Event Information:

Successful Management of Acute Dental Pain

This evidence-based course is designed to provide effective and practical strategies for managing acute dental pain emergencies.  The latest information on NSAIDS, acetaminophen-containing analgesics and local anesthetics will be provided with the objective of having immediate application to your next patient emergency.  Want to know how to anesthetize that hot tooth? How to predictably manage severe acute pain after surgical or endodontic treatments? How to combine common medications to improve analgesia? This course will answer these practical tips and more using a lecture style that emphasizes interactions with the audience in answering common pain problems with useful solutions.  

Course Objectives:  At the completion of this course, the practitioner should be able to:

  1. Describe a fast and efficient routine for managing dental pain emergency patients
  2. Select the best combination of analgesics to manage dental pain that avoid or minimize the need for opioids
  3. Provide effective local anesthesia to the classic “hot” molar case
