The Marion Polk Dental Society has a full schedule of meetings planned for 2017-18, and would like to extend an invitation to you to join MP, your local component society.
As a dentist who is licensed in Marion or Polk Counties, you are eligible for membership in the Tripartite organization (ADA/ODA/MP). You will be eligible to attend any of Marion Polk Dental Society's general membership meetings / programs, all while experiencing camaraderie among dental professionals who share the same goals as you. Those goals are: to maintain knowledge and skills and to provide services at the highest level, through quality educational programs.
MP is approved by the Academy of General Dentistry to offer continuing education credit for its members, although if you are not an AGD member, that credit may be applied towards your CE requirements or other professional groups.
Along with eight CE programs per year, MP has a publication and website that you might find useful for advertisement or just to keep you updated on all dental happenings. MP also will direct patients to the ODA website. That information is used to help guide patients to your practice.
Opportunities exist to represent MP at the annual ODA House of Delegates and the leadership conferences, to name a few. The ADA has endorsed products such as those from the ODS companies and will provide professional liability and property insurance to Oregon dentists at lower costs through DBIC.
