Welcome to the Ninth District Dental Association

The Ninth District Dental Society was formed in 1909 and renamed to the Ninth District Dental Association in 2002. We have a membership of over 1500 dentists in 5 counties: Westchester, Rockland, Dutchess, Orange and Putnam.

In its quest to serve both the public and the profession, the Ninth District embodies the highest ideals.

The mission of the 9th District Dental Association is to serve and support its members and the public by improving the oral health of our community through Advocacy, Continuing Education and Camaraderie.

The Ninth District Dental Association Board of Governors regretfully announces the cancellation of our Wednesday, May 20, 2020 General Meeting at the Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown, NY.  We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but trust you will understand this decision has been made with an abundance of caution, and in the interest of public health to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
We look forward to seeing you at our two remaining 2020 General Meetings:
Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie, NY and
Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at the Westchester Country Club in Rye, NY.
Please note, our Frills and Drills - Celebrating Women in Dentistry social has been postponed to the evening of Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at Saltaire in Port Chester.
We encourage everyone to follow the recommended safety precautions at the CDC’s website.
Thank you for your continuing support of the Ninth District Dental Association and we look forward to seeing you September 16th at our General Meeting!
Stay Safe and Healthy.

Latest News From The Ninth District


BLS/CPR Basic Life Support / CPR Certification


Out of an abundance of caution, to safeguard the health of our members, the Ninth District has cancelled all on-site CE Courses this Spring.  If you were registered for any Spring course that has been cancelled, your account has been credited for any fees paid, which may be used toward any Fall CE Course.  The ADA announced, earlier in this global health pandemic, that they would eliminate the 18 credit maximum for online courses to ensure doctors are able to meet their relicensure requirements.  Left in question, however, was how to make that work with CPR courses, as they require a hands-on portion to fulfill the terms of certification. 

 In a joint effort between the Ninth District and the New York State Dental Foundation, we found a solution that gives you some options!  Cut & paste the link below to the BLS/CPR portion of the American Red Cross website.  You will have the option of a fully, in-person course or a “split” course, which enables you to do the bulk of work online, with a follow-up, in person, skills assessment. There are numerous locations for either of these options - you will enter your Zip Code to find the most convenient for you.  Be aware that, in accordance with all social distancing protocols, class sizes have been reduced, you will be required to bring and wear a face mask and you will be subject to a temperature check prior to entry.

If you have any questions, please contact headquarters at your convenience.
