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.


Presentation Requests

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


National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM)

February is National 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 at (718) 522-3939 or at when you have established the event date to allow our volunteer dentists time to make scheduling arrangements.
