Tips for Referring New Members

Each member referral helps to strengthen the AADSM community. A growing membership helps you connect with dental sleep medicine professionals across the world and increases opportunities for knowledge-sharing. It also helps the field of dental sleep medicine become more recognizable, which benefits members long-term. Below are tips for referring new members: 

 Start by talking with individuals in your network who you are most familiar with, then expand your efforts to contacts outside your immediate network.
 Follow up with those you contact to ensure they understand how to join, where to enter your name as a referral, and answer questions they may have. For specific questions, you can direct them to
 Personalize the messages you send to each individual. You can utilize the message templates we've created for Full Membership, Academic Membership, or Dental Sleep Team Membership to get started.
 Don't forget to use social media! We have included sample social media posts here.

How and when will I receive my referral reward?
