The American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) is the only national organization representing the professional interests of the more than 226,000 dental hygienists in the United States.

To make it easier for hygienists to build thriving careers and livelihoods, the ADHA has partnered with onDiem to provide discounted ADHA memberships—which open the door to countless financial benefits, third-party discounts, CE opportunities, and community-building events. 

We’ve also worked with onDiem to give each ADHA member up to $3,000 per year in onDiem Care Benefits, designed to cover a wide range of health- and wellness-related expenses.

Through this partnership, the ADHA is discounting the national dues portion of your membership by 25%. onDiem will be paying for half of the remaining balance of all your dues—so at the end of the day, you’re potentially receiving over 50% off your total membership dues.

ADHA annual national dues are $228 in 2023. They will be discounted through this partnership by 25% to $171. As part of this national membership, there are additional dues that make up an annual membership cost to support your state and other local ADHA organizations. These are known as Constituent (State), Component (Local by zip code), and Assessment dues. Depending on your state, you may have up to all three of these parts of the greater ADHA organization, or none of them. With that in mind, the total non-discounted membership rate can vary from a low of $228 to a high of $398, depending on your zip code and state.

ADHA members receive a wide variety of benefits, including:

  • Free continuing education classes (CE)
  • Organized lobbying at the federal, state and local levels to improve hygienists’ working conditions, and flexibility to work
  • Discounted admission to the ADHA annual conference of $200 off
  • Free digital subscription to the Journal of Dental Hygiene (JDH)
  • Third-party discounts on insurance, travel, financial services, and home/office expenses

  • The ADHA discounts your national dues by 25%
  • onDiem splits the rest with you, which means they’ll pay for 50% of your remaining dues.
  • Your remaining dues will be paid in 4 equal installments over 4 completed onDiem shifts (6+ hours). For each installment, onDiem will deduct half from your paycheck, and match and pay the other half.
  • Once you’ve completed 4 shifts, you’ll be a fully paid member of the ADHA for the remainder of the annual term.

This is a one-time program between onDiem and the ADHA, so renewals will be handled directly with the ADHA at the standard renewal rate at that time.

If you’re an existing member, link your ADHA account to your onDiem profile and you’ll receive a $25 bonus for each of your next shifts (that are 6+ hours), for a total of $100.
