Florida Dental Association (FDA)
The Florida Dental Association (FDA) is a state constituent of the American Dental Association (ADA), which represents dentists throughout the country.
Founded in 1884 by 12 dentists, the FDA is a professional membership organization with more than 8,100 members. Florida is its own district — the 17th Trustee District — in the ADA governing structure. The FDA also has its own representatives on the ADA Board of Trustees, councils and committees.
Florida has six district dental associations that represent the interests and activities of dentists in those areas. Each district association is comprised of affiliate (local) societies that have separate membership policies and programs, but typically work in conjunction with their district dental associations.
