In past The Wealthy Dentist Surveys, dentists have been asked if the American Dental Association is dominated by specialists who are trying to promote their own agendas and not necessarily the welfare of the general dentist.
As many as two-thirds of the dentist respondents replied that specialists and their associations use the ADA just so they can make more money.
It has been reported that the ADA has over 155,000 member dentists and with 195,628 active dentists in the U.S., about 79% of dentists are still members of the ADA.
