  Whatever your passion, talent, or schedule, AzDA has a volunteer opportunity for you

Whether your passion is helping others in need, becoming an advocate for the dental profession, getting involved in Arizona politics, mentoring an aspiring dental professional or sharing time to help your local community, AzDA has an opportunity that will be ideal for you. 

Leadership: Serve as a Council or Committee Member

Serving in leadership is your opportunity to make a difference in your profession. You also will benefit from networking with colleagues and discussing current clinical and management issues that affect your practice and profession as a whole.  

Not sure we could use you? We are always looking for members who want to step up and shape the future of their organization and their profession—especially if you haven't served in leadership before.

We'll help you find a group you'll be comfortable and eager to join. To get things started, email AzDA's Executive Assistant, and please note if there is a specific council or committee you'd like to join, or if you are open. Click here to check out the different councils and committees (1/2 way down the web page).

AzMOM—Central Arizona Dental Society’s Dental Mission of Mercy

The Central Arizona Dental Society Foundation hosts the Mission of Mercy (AzMOM) event at the Arizona Fairgrounds in Phoenix, AZ. 

More than $1,000,000 in free care is expected to be delivered to 2,000 patients. Both children and adults will be seen. Basic dental care includes items such as: fillings, extractions and cleanings. Limited lab work (i.e., stainless-steel crowns for children, treatment partials) will be offered. The program is unable to treat patients with specific medically-compromising conditions (e.g., extremely high blood pressure, high blood sugar, severe disabilities).

Oral Health Day at the Arizona Capitol

Every February you can join us for Oral Health Day at the Capitol, an opportunity for you to talk one on one to your legislator and express your opinions on an array of legislation affecting access to care, oral health, and dental practice issues. Members who have “Adopted a Legislator” are strongly encouraged to attend.

Breakfast and lunch is provided and volunteers are able to observe various activities on the Senate or House Floor. The day usually wraps up by 2pm.
