ADA Member App fosters mentorship opportunities

New features enable members to connect with members in their state and/or local societies, users currently online, mentors


The right mentoring relationship can be a vital tool for professional growth.

But one of the trickiest things about mentoring  is that it can be difficult to find an entry point.

That is where a new feature in the ADA Member App comes in.

New chat enhancement enables members to filter by user to connect with members in their state and/or local societies, users currently online, as well as mentors who have opted-in to be available for real-time answers and knowledge-sharing. 

Chat users can also create groups to further opportunities for connection, networking and knowledge sharing.

The dentist-designed, reimagined ADA Member App provides ADA members with quick access to:

  • A personalized newsfeed to stay current on what matters most.
  • ADA CE transcripts, completed and in-progress CE courses and ADA CE Online subscriptions.
  • Career resources, including a career path quiz to help members find the right fit based on their interests.
  • Digital wallet to help organize and keep important documents handy.
  • Initiating or updating credentials with the ADA credentialing service, powered by CAQH ProView.
  • Updating member and ADA Find-a-Dentist profiles to help patients find you.
  • The latest from ADA News, registration for events and exclusive content from ADA’s newest podcast “Dental Sound Bites” and more.

To opt-in to be available as a mentor in the app, members should log into the app using their member login, navigate to their profile, tap on Communication Preferences, and check the box indicating “Activate designation as a mentor in chat.”
