CADS is a component society of the Tennessee Dental Association (TDA) and the American Dental Association(ADA); therefore, members can take advantage of benefits of each branch of the tripartite affiliation.
As stated in the organization’s Constitution, “The object of this Society shall be 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 members of the dental profession and the public which it serves.”
To that extent,on the local level CADS provides opportunities for and with the members to earn continuing education credits, to have available a list of individuals (hygienists, assistants and front desk) seeking employment in a dental office, to acknowledge member accomplishments, and to take advantage of the benefits of the TDA and ADA. To aid the public, CADS members conduct dental health education projects and activities, are involved in and support other community organizations, and volunteer in clinics. As a courtesy, the CADS office provides individuals with referrals to member dentists.”
