I don't know about you, but I can name at least TEN professional organizations that I am a member of.
From the AAPD to the American College of Dentists, plus countless memberships in personal interests and hobbies, I firmly believe that associating with people of like-minded interests and aspirations makes a huge impact in the success of your life.
Ever heard the expression, "a rising tide lifts all boats?" Well that's what associations and memberships are like.
Quite frankly, it's high time PDAs got an association of their own, don't you think?
When you surround yourself with people who have ambition, desire, and dreams, you yourself will naturally be pushed to realize your own ambitions and dreams.
And that is what the mission of PDAA strives to achieve: to advance the profession by promoting high standards of practice, projecting a positive view of pediatric dental assistants, and providing ongoing education for our members in all aspects of their profession.
You, as the doctor/owner, get hands-off trainings for your PDAs, while your dental assistants grow in their skills and gain knowledge and valuable training.
The resources, growth, and collaboration naturally increases their satisfaction and pride in their chosen careers.
When your PDAs are happy, they are productive.
When they are productive, you make money.
It's a win-win.
