Alabama's Oral Health Advocate


Welcome to, the internet home of the Alabama Dental Association.

Founded in 1869, the Alabama Dental Association is a membership organization of Alabama dentists and part of a tripartite system with the American Dental Association and our nine component District Dental Societies.

ALDA represents over 1,800 Alabama dentists and their efforts to provide quality dental care to the citizens of our state.

The mission of the Association is to encourage the improvement of the health of the public, to promote the art and science of dentistry, and to represent the interests of the dental profession and the public for which it serves.


A large part of what your dental association does is to advocate for your profession and for your patients

ALDA has two contract lobbyists and two full-time staff members who are also registered lobbyists. It is the job of our contract lobbyists to provide an early warning system for legislation that can negatively affect your ability to provide your patients with the dental care they and you decide is best with a minimum of government intrusion. You cannot be in Montgomery to talk with legislators on a regular basis, but our lobbyists do that work for you daily while the legislature is in session. For example, the State Employees Health Insurance Board has proposed to eliminate dental insurance for state employees. ALDA is working tirelessly to reverse that proposal.
