Chicago Dental Society Relaunches Member Benefit: Member Advantage Program

Posted on Monday, April 15, 2024

The Chicago Dental Society (CDS) announces the relaunch of an enhanced membership benefit, the Member Advantage Program. The program has added two new partners, Safco Dental Supply and Torch Dental, who join Amazon Business, Southpoint Insurance, and Treloar & Heisel.

“We’re very excited to offer our members a suite of new benefits through the Member Advantage Program,” said CDS President Dr. David Lewis. “The CDS staff worked hard to expand the program to five dedicated partnerships, but we’re not done yet. We’ll continue to build the partnership network to provide our members access to even more benefits that complement their dental careers.”

The Member Advantage Program provides discounts and opportunities to enhance a CDS member’s career. From primary and specialty dental supply distributors to insurance plans and office supply distributors, the Member Advantage Program provides CDS members with access to exclusive product and supply discounts, inventory management tracking and insurance plans to provide members with security. To take advantage of the deals provided by Member Advantage Program partners, CDS members and associate members can visit the Member Center on and sign up with each partner. Most Member Advantage Program partners include exclusive sign-up deals for CDS members.

“Joining CDS was one of the best decisions I’ve made for my career,” said CDS member and New Dentist Board Director Dr. Sara Imtiaz. “The professional connections and friendships I’ve built through CDS are irreplaceable and have opened many doors for me. It’s incredible to have access to so many dental professionals across Chicago but also right in your neighborhood. Beyond the many networking and educational benefits a CDS membership provides, I’m excited to be able to take advantage of financial savings on products my dental team uses every day.”

The Member Advantage Program is the latest addition to a suite of benefits CDS members enjoy. A CDS membership provides members with:

  • • Free registration to the Midwinter Meeting (the largest, longest-running scientific dental tradeshow in the industry)

  • • Rebate for a purchase made on the exhibit floor at the Midwinter Meeting

  • • Free registration for members and their dental teams at CDS Regional Meetings
