Welcome to the Essex County Dental Society!
We welcome you to the new and improved website of the Essex County Dental Society. We have streamlined access so no login is required, and improved and updated content. We have made it easier to find information, and link to important resources. We hope you find it a more user friendly environment!
Organized dentistry needs your support. There is power in numbers, and to advance the interests of dentists, your membership is needed. The political and social landscape is rapidly changing, with much legislation working against dentists. With the efforts of the ADA and NJDA,we are fighting for your practice!
