Colleagues Offering Varied Emergency Relief Program
Throughout the year circumstances arise that force dentists to be out of their offices for extended periods, that's where the MDA's Colleagues Offering Varied Emergency Relief Program can help.
The COVER Program is a members-only service providing dentists with a statewide list of colleagues who have expressed interest in providing temporary coverage while they are away from the office. To access the list of participants, click on the button below and enter your ADA number on the screen that follows.
Although the MDA will provide the list of doctors interested in providing coverage, it will not participate in any negotiations between dentists, and will not filter listed dentists by geographic region. MDA members are able to access the legal services of Kerr, Russell and Weber, PLC at a discounted rate for assistance with developing employment contracts.
In addition, it is the dentist-in-need’s responsibility to verify insurance coverage for the guest dentists. However, for member dentists who participate in MDA Insurance programs, the dentist-in-need can contact MDA Insurance to verify that any guest dentist would be covered.
