The Hawaii Dental Association is a statewide professional association of dentists licensed and practicing in Hawaii. We are a non-profit corporation incorporated in Hawaii since 1903 and come under the US tax code 501c6 for professional associations. Hawaii Dental Association members, and all dentists practicing in Hawaii, are licensed by the State of Hawaii, Board of Dental Examiners, which provides governance and oversight of the practice of dentistry in Hawaii.
The Hawaii Dental Association is a voluntary membership association and members pay annual dues to belong to the Hawaii Dental Association. The Hawaii Dental Association is not a part of County, State of Federal government but is a private, non-profit corporation.
The Hawaii Dental Association is the Hawaii state subsidiary of the national American Dental Association and is made up of four county level dental societies: the Hawaii County Dental Society, the Honolulu County Dental Society, the Kauai County Dental Society and the Maui County Dental Society.
The Hawaii Dental Association has 980 members representing over 90% of all dentists practicing in Hawaii in general dentistry and the eight dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association.
