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.

N95 initial fit testing is only required if the wearing of an N95 mask is required.

The ADA has posted a template for dentists to use in performing a hazard assessment: COVID-19 Hazard Assessment.
