The website is an invaluable information hub for all things PDA , containing a tremendous volume of content in an attractive , accessible format , and it is a great membership benefit , providing continuous updates on a wide variety of topics . And with recent changes , regular visitors of the site may have noticed some new features .
Yes , PDA ’ s retooled website is looking different today . We ’ ve created a responsive interface for easier navigation and locating the content most meaningful to you . We ’ ve also added new features to help disseminate important and helpful information to all of our members .
Perhaps the most significant feature is a mobile responsive design for smart phones and other devices . Our other new features include streamlined communication with automatic alerts and emails , and a faster membership application process .
The biggest transformation is in the design . PDA ’ s responsive website means better browsing and effortless navigating . Responsive sites are fluid and adjust as needed , scaling up or down to fit your device . So whether you ’ re on a smart phone , tablet or desktop , you ’ ll be able to find what you need and not lose any time .
Another feature new to the upgrade provides automatic alerts and emails that will keep members updated with both personalized and member-wide messages . These include alerts for new legislation and important deadlines , a notice to pay your membership dues or a reminder to attend an event you ’ ve registered for .
We ’ ve also updated the membership application process extensively . Membership is so vital to PDA and now joining has become faster and easier . New members can fill out the application on the website , have their dues calculated and make a payment all in one sitting .
Our website updates and design have been executed with a better user experience in mind for both our members and staff . PDA ’ s website is our greatest communications tool to serve members so continuous maintenance and regular updates are our priorities . We encourage you to log on and take advantage of all the features .
A reminder of one of the many longtime benefits of the site : district and local dental societies can create their own , unique websites as part of ours , with links on the Membership section of the site . This allows smaller societies , whose budgets are limited , to establish web presences at little or no cost .
Webinars and CE
We are always interested in your feedback and encourage you to let us know what parts of the site you are using most frequently . Contact Natalie Owens , Creative Design Manager , at nmo @ padental . org , with any comments or questions about the website .
