Payment Policy

All payments must be made in U.S. currency by credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) or by personal check drawn on a U.S. bank and made payable to the Chicago Dental Society. CDS makes an effort to process all registration requests. Mailed/faxed registrations will not be processed after Jan. 10.

A CDS Membership Pays Dividends

Free registration for the Midwinter Meeting is a benefit available only to those CDS members who have paid their 2024 dues. Associate members receive the same benefits as local members, including free registration for the Midwinter Meeting, the opportunity to participate in CDS educational and special event opportunities throughout the year and much more. If you are an ADA member outside Lake, Cook, and DuPage counties in Illinois or an international dentist, you can sign up to be a CDS associate member.


If you choose to mail-in your registration, do not include your CDS dues payment. An outside contractor handles registration. Enclosing your dues payment with your registration materials will only delay the processing of both your dues and your registration.

Direct mail registration can be sent to:
Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting
C/O Advanced Tradeshow Technologies
P.O. Box 735, Minooka, IL 60447

Associate Member dues can be paid online at Tripartite Member dues can be paid at

Please note that it may take up to one week to process your membership before you can preregister as Category A (CDS Dentist). You cannot join the ADA through CDS while preregistering. Register as a non-ADA member and contact your state dental society to join the ADA. If you do join the ADA for 2023 prior to April 1, CDS will refund the difference of the non-ADA registration fee.
