For the Public

The New York State Dental Association believes patient education is key to understanding the connection between oral health and overall health. NYSDA seeks to educate not only dentists, but the patients our members serve, as well.

We offer resources and information for patients to learn more about dental procedures and find a dentist near them. NYSDA’s information can help you choose the dentist that is right for you. Additional resources offered by NYSDA help patients feel comfortable and confident while they’re at the dentist.

After visiting your dentist, you’ll want to move into proper maintenance at home. Whether you’re looking for information on fluoridation, oral health advice, or just have some general questions, our At Home section is a great place to start. 

Are you an educator looking for resources for teaching dental health? The American Dental Association and NYSDA can assist you with classroom ideas, children’s oral health initiatives and much more with our educational resources.
