To join:

The Dental Section provides activities and programs that promote, advance, and facilitate communication among persons with interests in dental medicine and oral biology and contributes to the management of dental collections. Anyone interested in the field is welcome to join us. 

Member Benefits

Dental Section members have access to the section forum, member directory, a list of dental libraries, and resources on dental collections. 

The first step to becoming a member of the Dental Section is to join the Medical Library Assocation.

Membership in the Dental Section is a good way to become more involved in MLA. Since we are a small section it is easy to get to know other members, and opportunities to participate in the work of the section come quite quickly. 

If you would like to know more about the section, or if you are already a member who would like to take a more active role, please contact one of current officers.

Join the Dental Section for just $10 per year!

Public Resources

Every three or four years, Dental Section members recommend book titles for a core resource dental collection to support the information and research needs of the oral health care provider (student and practitioner).
