The objective of the United States Dental Tennis Association is to foster and encourage all dentists and auxiliaries to play tennis for the betterment of their physical and mental well-being, regardless of their level of skill; and to cooperate with various schools of dentistry and other recognized dental organizations to promote Continuing Education courses and seminars which will refine the participants’ skills in the practice of dentistry. However, many of our members and their families choose to take part in activities other than tennis during our meetings. The USDTA staff works to ensure that every event is unique, informative, and fun with a variety of events to keep the whole family busy.
