New Dentist Resources

Dentists who graduated from dental school less than 10 years ago are considered new dentists. The MPDS has a New Dentist Committee and they are dentists with the issues and concerns of new dentists in mind. This committee represents, promotes, and supports new dentists. The committee serves as a peer resource for integration of new dentists into our community and into organized dentistry.

The New Dentist Committee will host a series of seminars and annually, this committee will host social functions.

Some topics to be discussed:

  • Retire On Your Terms: Planning For Your Tomorrow
  • HIPAA Compliance for the New Dentist
  • Going Paperless
  • Communicating Your Quality of Care
  • Getting Patients in the Door and Retaining Them Once You Have Them
  • Your Finances: Getting a Grip on the Basics
  • Communicating With Your Team and With Your Patients
  • Leadership Habits—Are You Ready to be the Boss?

New dentists should also make special note of CDA's endorsed products and services, as well as TDIC insurance products. If you have any problems using any of the endorsed companies, you have a personal advocate through the MPDS. Approved as leaders in quality and value for their particular industry, many CDA and TDICIS endorsed products and services participate in a royalty plan that provides income to the MPDS whenever members use them. This non-dues revenue helps to keep MPDS membership dues as low as possible.

The ADA also has new dentist resources available to our members. For more information, go to
