SDDS…Dedicated to Healthy Smiles



Welcome to the Scranton District Dental Society’s website.  We hope you find this site user-friendly and informative.

The SDDS is a voluntary organization comprising approximately 150 local member dentists. It is a constituency of the American Dental Association (ADA), the largest and oldest national dental society in the world, and the Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA).  The SDDS oversees activities like Children’s Dental Health Month, public education, school visitations, and continuing education for dentists.

The mission of the SDDS is to provide dentists with a forum to discuss pertinent issues that relate to the practice and regulation of dentistry as it pertains to the health and general well being of the communities we serve.
