As part of their mission, the AADOCR encourages participation from dental schools and universities, government agencies, non-profit organizations and other entities in the furtherance of dental, oral and craniofacial research throughout the world. 

Many of these entities choose to support the AADOCR through Institutional Section membership.  Through the Institutional Section, your organization is given the opportunity to promote dental research and have an active voice in the direction of the Association. 

To join as an Institutional Section member, first review the benefits of Institutional Section membership. Then select your level of membership in the Institutional Section.
