What is tripartite organized dentistry?

"Tripartite" describes dentistry's three-tiered structure of membership, and is also used to describe the organizational tiers collectively. To be an active tripartite member, dentists must join their local (component) society, state (constituent) society, and the ADA. Each level within the tripartite sets its own dues, elects its own officers and directors, and makes decisions on the services and benefits it offers to members.
