Second District Dental Society (SDDS) is the local affiliate of the New York State Dental Association (NYSDA) and the American Dental Association (ADA) representing dentists in the counties of Kings (Brooklyn) and Richmond (Staten Island). Second District’s role is to represent and support the dentists of Brooklyn and Staten Island in their efforts to provide quality oral health care to the public within the ethical framework of organized dentistry.


The ADA is the largest and most influential professional association of dentists in the United States. 163,000 dentists strong! This is a little more than 70% of all the dentists nationwide. Dentists are impacted by issues and regulations not just locally, but at the state and national levels as well. The tripartite structure of organized dentistry is the most effective vehicle to support dentists’ interests at each level. The tripartite is mutually supportive. The structure promotes unity in the dental profession. It provides for a consistent approach and a unified voice on issues affecting the art and science of dentistry and the oral health of the general public.
