Welcome to the New York County Dental Society
Founded in 1860, the New York County Dental Society is one of the largest groups of dentists in the United States. With more than 2,000 members practicing in Manhattan, NYCDS members have made a special commitment to uphold its ethical code and practice standards, as well as those of New York State and the American Dental Association. It is an invaluable advocacy and education resource that protects its members and the public.
Your Support is Needed
We want to continue to provide innovative and relevant programming for members.
Without additional support it simply won't be possible in the future.
Please make a donation of any size to our NYCDS GoFundMe today.
If you, your patients, or others that you know need strategies for coping, join noted psychiatrist Judith Fiona Joseph, M.D., M.B.A, as she provides guidance on an issue that is often mentioned but rarely addressed.

Many of you are asking where will dentists be on the COVID-19 vaccine priority list. NYSDA’s position is that dentists and dental office personnel should be listed in phase 1a and not phase 2 of essential workers.
Functional Relations: Racial Diversity
Even though NYC is one of the most diverse parts of the US, not
everyone is comfortable talking about race. Our diverse panelists
are leading the way by starting a conversation about race, equity,
and inclusion. This is the first step towards positive change.
