About Us

The New York State Dental Association is the voice of the dental profession in New York State. Since its founding in 1868, dental professionals have relied on NYSDA to represent them in legislature, advance the profession and set the highest ethical standards for practice.

NYSDA is the New York State constituent of the American Dental Association. This powerful partnership is enhanced by our 13 local component dental associations and societies that make up our state. Members enjoy many benefits at all three levels, and there are countless ways to get involved.

Oral health is critical to overall health, and NYSDA strives to deliver that message every day.

Investigators at NYU believe they’ve uncovered a cause--in the list of medications patients take. You can read about their findings and recommendations in the November New York State Dental Journal. Also of note in the issue are an evaluation of NYSDA’s Dental Demonstration Project, now at the five-year mark; a summary of new legislation impacting the dental profession in New York State; and a plea for dentists to take sleep apnea seriously. You can read these and other articles in the November Journal, available only online here
