Membership Discounts

PAGD is pleased to offer benefits exclusive to our members. In addition to a preferred rate for all of our continuing education, PAGD has arranged for discounts on products and services to help your business.

PAGD has joined with Darby Dental Products to give you a discount on products you order. Each member who participates will receive additional discounts of 10-17 percent on select products off of published Darby Dentalog prices.

In addition, Darby has agreed to give PAGD members a rebate on the products you purchase. Once you enroll in the program, you will receive a monthly rebate of 2 percent of total Darby purchases. This rebate will be placed on a reloadable Visa card. The Visa card will be sent to members once they send acknowledgement of their participation to Darby. You can use this debit card to pay for anything, including PEAK events.
