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.

Dentists highlight oral health care gap for people with disabilities

9th District's Dr. Raquel Rozdolski among those addressing the oral health care gap for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities

Raquel Rozdolski, D.M.D., director of anesthesia and pain control at New York's Touro College of Dental Medicine, and Susan DiSenso-Browne, D.D.S., director of special needs at TCDM, are working to raise awareness about and address the oral health care gap for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, the school reported. They want to increase the number of dental providers who are trained to provide oral health care for this population, and in 2020 they launched the Smiles United program, which allows dental providers to connect virtually with patients with disabilities. "From lack of provider training to insufficient facilities and services to transportation roadblocks, or lack of oral health education by the individuals' caregivers, many people with IDD go months to years without proper dental care," said Dr. DiSenso-Browne.
