Want to place a classified ad?

TDA classified ads are one of the most effective, low-cost, and popular resources for buying/selling practices, or hiring dentists for your team. However, before you submit your ad, you must read the following information before you decide whether a TDA classified ad is right for you.


Before submitting your classified ad, you must read ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS, POLICIES, AND TERMS AND CONDITIONS. You are responsible for knowing, agreeing to, and abiding by this information as you choose to enter into this transaction. 

Instructions and Policies:
1. CLASSIFIED ADS--WHAT THEY ARE, AND ARE NOT: 
Classified ads are text-only ads that are used for purposes such as selling a practice, hiring an associate, selling a dental office space, selling dental equipment, or offering interim services. Ads for the general services of a company are not appropriate as classified ads, and would only be accepted as display ads (please click here for our display ad Media Kit).

2. WHERE ADS ARE PLACED:
Classified ads can be placed in print (in the "Advertising Briefs" section at the back of TDA's monthly science magazine, the Texas Dental Journal), or online on our website here, or both. 

3. RESPONSIBILITY FOR PAYMENT:
-You are responsible for paying, in full, for each month that your ad runs (except in the rare case that your ad is run due to an error on TDA's end).
-If payment is not received, TDA reserves the right to pursue money owed, up to and including reporting to collections.
-If TDA is not able to charge your card (due to your card being declined, expired, or replaced, etc.) you must provide your updated credit card information ASAP and pay for any outstanding balances owed to TDA. 

4. BILLING CYCLES:
-Billing for classified ads (both online and print ads) is typically done when that month's issue of the Texas Dental Journal is published. The Journal is published at varying times based on the availability of scientific content, which means that each month's billing may not take place until mid-month, late in the month, or even early in the next month. 
-For example, April billing may not take place until late April or early May. If you cancelled your ad February 25th, your ad still runs through April-- and you are still responsible for paying it, even if the April billing may not take place until late April or early May. 

5. MONTHLY CREDIT CARD PROCESSING: 
-When TDA processes ads and charges your credit card, each charge is tied to a specific advertisement, a specific month, and a corresponding, individual invoice number. In other words, if your ad runs for 7 months (for example), you are billed every month for a total of 7 months--no more, no fewer. 
-If you suspect you may have been billed for too many months, please review these guidelines and FAQ section to see if your question can be explained by our billing cycles. TDA can provide invoices confirming the specific ads and dates of all charges, upon request.

6. PRICING: 
-Print cost for ADA Members: $60 for the first 30 words; 10 cents for each additional word.
-Print cost for non-ADA Members: $100 for the first 30 words; 10 cents for each additional word.
-Online Ad Cost: $40 per ad, regardless of ADA membership status or word count.
-Online Immediate Placement fee (next business day): $60 one-time fee.

7. MONTHLY TURNOVER: 
Online ads, like print ads, are refreshed on a monthly basis. The month's classified ads are usually added on the first business day of each month.

8. SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 
The rolling, monthly deadline is the 20th of the month, 2 months prior.  

9. IMMEDIATE ONLINE PLACEMENT OPTION:
When you select "Immediate Placement" for the online ad, TDA staff will make every effort to post your ad online within 1 business day. If you do not select immediate online placement, your ad will not be placed online immediately. 
Please note: If you choose "Place Ad Online Immediately," and select "Run Once," the ad will only run for the duration of that month. For example, if you choose "Place Ad Online Immediately" on the 22nd of the month, and choose "Run Once," your ad will only be up for approximately 1 week. If you want it to run after that month, you need to select "Run Monthly," or select "Run Consecutively" and the number of months you would like it to run.

10. CANCELLATION DEADLINE: 
The rolling monthly deadline for cancellation is also the 20th of the month, 2 months out. Cancellations must be made in writing by  clicking here, or by emailing TDA Managing Editor Billy Callis at bcallis@tda.org clearly stating your intent to cancel. 

11. POTENTIAL FOR EARLY PLACEMENT:
In some cases, TDA may be able to place your ad earlier than the stated monthly deadline, based on production times. For instance, if you place your ad after July 20th, there may still be a chance that TDA can run your ad online and/or in print before October, if TDA’s production times allow it. If this option is available, TDA will use it and run your ad earlier for you, at no extra charge except for the usual monthly rate. This cannot be ordered or requested by advertisers, cannot be guaranteed by TDA, and is only available at TDA's discretion, when production times allow.

11. SUBJECT TO REVIEW: 
This is not an automated posting system. When you enter your payment information and submit your ad, it does not go through automatically. Your ad and your payment are carefully processed by TDA staff members. 

12. FORMATTING AND CONTENT: 
-All Practice Opportunity and Office Space ads must begin with a location (such as a city, area, or region of the state). For example, "San Antonio" "Panhandle," or "Northeast Texas." 

-Ads must follow a format similar to this example: "AUSTIN, TX: Dental practice located in a great area looking for (associate, buyer, etc.) Revenue in the low-to-mid six figures. Great opportunity for the right dentist. Please call 555-555-5555 or email example@example.com for more details." 

-The body of your classified ad MUST include contact information for interested parties to respond. Otherwise, they will not know how to contact you. 

13. SPECIFIC PRACTICES: 
-Practice Opportunity and Office Space ads must refer to one or more specific dental practices and/or properties. 

14. NO SPECIFIC INCOMES: 
By official TDA resolution, classified ads may not quote specific incomes or revenues. Incomes or revenues must be made general. For example, "$315,000" must be changed to "low-to-mid 6 figures." 

15. HOW TO SUBMIT:
Fill out the Order Form to place your ad (available at the bottom of this page). Please note: your contact information (for us to contact you) and valid payment information is required. The contact information you enter is for TDA to contact you and it must be valid. The only contact information that appears in your ad is the information you choose to put in your ad. The zip code you enter must match the credit card you are using to pay.

16. TDA'S RIGHT TO EDIT: 
TDA reserves the right to edit all classified ads for style, clarity, compliance with guidelines, punctuation, spelling, and/or any other editorial needs.  

19. ADS MAY BE REJECTED:
TDA reserves the right to reject classified ads (for example: the ad is improperly formatted; the ad is for the general services of a company rather than for a specific opportunity). 

19. EDITING EXISTING ADS:  
If you want to edit your classified ad, any edits you request after submission: 1) must not change the word count of the ad you already submitted, and 2) must be submitted in writing to TDA as soon as possible before the next deadline. It may not always be possible to edit an existing ad. 

20. REMOVING EXISTING ADS: 
If you have cancelled your classified ad, it will be taken out of online and/or print circulation based on when you submitted your cancellation. Alternately, if you selected "Run Consecutively," it will be taken down after the number of months you specified. TDA can only stop your ad from running if you cancel it by the deadline, or if the consecutive number of months you ordered is finished. 

22. NO GUARANTEED OUTCOMES:
TDA does not guarantee any kind of outcome from any advertisement.
