Public Education Programs

The Second District Dental Society promotes oral health and consumer education through community education programs of our Oral Health Committee, in partnership with other community service programs or events, and with local schools.

 

If you are interested in having a dentist speak directly to your group or class about the importance of oral health, please contact us at Second District at (718) 522-3939 or at info@sddsny.org and we will attempt to arrange for a member dentist to visit your classroom.  Dentists are available to make presentations for grades Pre-K thru High School. The visiting dentist may use models or diagrams, hand-outs, and video tapes to teach good dental health habits and other concepts. Sorry, we do not perform dental screenings.

 

February is Childrens Dental Health Month! This is particularly busy programming month for the scores of area schools. So please keep in mind that advance notice is critical.  If you need a dental speaker at an event such as a health fair or school career day, again, please contact us when you have established the event date to allow our volunteer dentists time to make scheduling arrangements.
