DMS Basics

Viewing and Editing Your Personal Information

View/Edit Your Personal Information allows you to change or update your personal information including your password, your school information, office addresses, home address, and family info. The address information in the DMS is used (for diplomates) to produce the diplomate directory, as well as for AVDC mailings. Please make sure this information stays accurate.

You need to be logged in to the DMS to perform any of these tasks.
