Member Benefits


All members of the society are entitled to a range of valuable benefits in addition to those offered by the New York State Dental Association (NYSDA) and the American Dental Association (ADA).

  • Members of Second District are entitled to valuable benefits such as peer review, malpractice claims review, health, life and disability insurance plans and various other sponsored programs to help you in your dental practice. 

  • Second District is the major local provider of continuing education for its members, offering over 25 presentations each year. Members may attend all meetings and continuing education programs of the Society at reduced tuition and in some cases no tuition at all.

  • Each year Second District sponsors four General Membership Meetings/buffet dinners for its members free of charge where you can earn up to 4 hours of continuing education hours a year toward your licensure requirement.

  • As a member benefit, any course sponsored by Second District Dental Society that you take will be automatically recorded for you with the NYSDA Continuing Education Registry. Participating members can view their official transcript online. The transcript serves as acceptable proof of courses taken if and whenever requested by the New York State Education Department. This service eliminates much of the paperwork now mandated by law.

  • Members receive all periodicals of the Society.

  • Members are eligible for a reduced membership dues program for the first five years immediately after completion of residency or specialty training.
