Leadership Opportunities


Leading on PDA Committees

PDA considers participation in committees to be essential in supporting our organizational goals. Through a spirit of volunteerism, dentists and administrative staff lend their voices, time, energy, and focus to implementing changes in our organization.  Associates have the opportunity to help create an organization they want to buy in to, and Shareholders help the organization flourish.

At PDA, Associates can develop leadership skills by volunteering to serve on one of several committees, such as the Clinical Effectiveness Committee, the Peer Review Committee or the Associates Committee.  Once an Associate Dentist is elected to Shareholder, he or she may run for PDA’s Board of Directors.
