Attention Class of 2019

September 2019 Volume LIV Number 5

 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, 2019.
  • To be listed as an Active Member in the printed 2020 Membership Directory applications must be received by Sept. 1, 2019. Membership applications are available at
  • Recent graduates 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:
2019 Graduate Convert before Dec. 31, 2019 Convert after Dec. 31, 2019
First year out 2019-20 $0 Prorated dues if application not received by Dec. 31, 2019
Second year out 2020-21 $345 Active Dues
Third year out 2021-22 $345 Active Dues
Transition from post doctoral student membership to Active membership is not automatic. Student members must submit an applica- tion 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 membership@aapd. org 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.
