• Join CDS

  • CDS Membership Application Form

    CDS membership is based on a calendar year. Membership dues are not prorated. Reduced dues are ADA-directed and based on years out of dental school and/or residency or post-graduate programs. Please leave a valid, preferred telephone number or email address for the Member Services Department to contact you with the best quote for dues for membership in the ADA/ISDS/CDS.

    Dues can be paid by American Express, MasterCard or Visa credit cards, or check to the Chicago Dental Society. Current membership guarantees you free registration to Midwinter Meeting for the year your dues are paid.

    CDS members are dentists—either general practitioners or those in one of the eight specialty designations—who fall into one of three membership categories:

    • 4,200 regular members who live in Cook, Lake or DuPage Counties
    • 3,200 associate members who live outside Cook, DuPage or Lake Counties
    • Students at an accredited dental school

    Select the membership type that is most appropriate for you.
