Attention: Class of 2016

July 2016 Volume LI Number 4

The AAPD congratulates all June postdoctoral graduates on their commencement into the profession. We would also like to remind you about the many reasons why membership in the AAPD is so important, especially at this point in your career.

  • Free transition from student to active membership. This applies only if you complete an active membership application and return it to the AAPD headquarters office prior to Dec. 31, 2016.
  • To be listed as an Active Member in the printed 2016 Membership Directory applications must be received by Sept. 1, 2016. Membership applications are available at
  • Recent graduate are afforded one year dues-waived and two years of reduced membership dues at 50 percent off the full active membership dues rate if they have maintained continuous membership. The dues reduction rate would translate to:
  • 2016 Graduate Convert before Dec. 31, 2016
    Convert after Dec. 31, 2016
    1st year out-2016-2017 $0 Prorated dues if app not receive by 12/31/2016
    2nd year out-2017-2018 $345 Active Dues
    3rd year out-2018-2019 $345 Active Dues

Transition from student membership to active membership is not automatic. Student members must submit an application and a copy of their pediatric dentistry certificate to the AAPD office.

Alternatively, program directors may send a list of graduating residents to verify the completion their program to our office to and AAPD will automatically update their membership status to Active; otherwise the student must send in an application with certificate. For questions regarding student to active membership please contact AAPD Membership Department at (312) 337-2169.
