ASTDD Membership Categories and Benefits
State & Territorial Oral Health Program Membership
The State/Territorial Oral Health Program Membership category is for the Chief Dental Public Health Officer (Dental Director) of each State or Territorial Health Department or equivalent agency and all oral health program staff who work directly for the State/Territorial Oral Health Program in its central office. This does not include staff who work in regional or county programs. The individual dental director is considered the voting Member and staff are non-voting Associate Members. Once dues are paid for the year, membership is transferable even if the individual acting as State/Territorial Dental Director or staff changes.
Individual Associate Membership
Individual Associate Membership is open to individuals from a public agency, voluntary organization or tribal entity, or health professionals employed or interested in dental public health.
Organizational Associate Membership
Organizational Associate Membership is open to not-for-profit organizations other than State/Territorial Oral Health Programs. This membership opportunity entitles organizations to one primary associate member contact and up to 3 additional associate member contacts.
