Get involved as a volunteer leader at the ODA

As an ODA member, there are many opportunities to volunteer as a leader in the association to serve on our committees and councils.

ODA member involvement in our association is vital for our ongoing representation of Ohio dentists and the dental industry.

Volunteering on an ODA council or committee provides members with a chance to grow personally and professionally, to develop valuable skills, gain unique experience, and make lasting connections with other passionate and motivated member dentists. Volunteer service on an ODA council or committee is a rare chance to help strategically improve the programs and services that we offer to our members and provides unique opportunities to expand your network and gain recognition from your peers.

While we actively seek nominations for members to serve on the ODA’s councils and committees at certain times of the year, we also encourage members to submit an online application on their own at any time. To learn more, log in to the member-protected section of our website.
