Districts

The MDA is divided into eight district dental societies, including seven statewide geographic districts and one student district based at the University of Minnesota Dental School. Dentists who are members of the Minnesota Dental Association are also members of the American Dental Association and one district society, based on the location of their dental practice.

District dental societies are organized to provide both educational and professional development opportunities for members, as well as to offer dentists an organized method of addressing community oral health issues.
