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.

Read also about another young dentist, Dr. Dalal Alhajji, who is attracting attention as a leader in the field of dental oncology.  And learn about an important new study out of NYU College of Dentistry that found a link between dental implant failures and penicillin allergies.
