The New York State Dental Association is the leading oral health advocate in our State. NYSDA is constantly on guard to influence public policies affecting the practice of dentistry in NY and the oral health of the American public.  Add your voice to the more than 13,000 NYSDA members who make it possible for dentistry to be heard.

Headquartered in Albany, NYSDA lobbies Public Policy Makers—fighting for things that matter to dentists and the patients they serve. We also provide technical support to help component dental societies advance their respective policy agendas and protect the profession in your local communities.
