Mission, Vision, and Philosophy


We help dentists transition and recognize possibilities for their lives.


The Association of Retiring Dentists is the global organization that educates and helps dentists transition from full time careers to action-oriented, productive retirement by identifying and providing volunteer and educational programs and activities that enrich their lives and the lives of others.


With a focus on purpose and through proper preparation, the latter stages of dentists’ careers and retirement years can be the most fulfilling and enjoyable of their entire lives, utilizing their lifetimes of accumulated skills, resources, and talents for the benefit of others.
