Earn a $100 gift card per new active member recruited (up to five members) for $500 in gift cards. Or, decline the incentive and the MDA will contribute $100 to the MDA Foundation for each member you recruit.

Earn the same incentive though the ADA’s Member Get A0 Member program for a combined $1,000 in total incentives! Visit the ADA’s Member Get a Member program for more information at

New this year for Detroit, Macomb, Oakland, and Washtenaw components! To encourage participation in the components with the greatest opportunity for growth, the MDA will pick up the tab for a nonmember to attend up to two component dinner meetings. That means that a member dentist can host a nonmember, making the conversation about membership easier, and allowing for you and MDA staff to follow up.

All incentives will be awarded at the end of each quarter (June, September, December).

How to Participate

Once the non-member colleague you've recruited becomes a member, notify the MDA with his/her name by completing a Member Recruitment Form. Just enter your name, contact information and the name of the dentist you recruited. That’s it!

NOTE: The MDA Member Get A Member program will end Dec. 31, 2016.
