Welcome to the New Hampshire Dental Society

The NHDS is home to nearly 800 member dentists and over 200 hygienists and other oral health practitioners.   We are proud to serve as our members’ main source of information on oral health in the Granite State.  NHDS members have access to local, state and federal political advocacy, Continuing Education, marketing, business and staff development services.  Members and non-members alike can find information about NHDS meetings, events, membership, publications, endorsed partners and more right here.  

The NHDS is also an invaluable resource for the general public. If you seek a dentist close to you, want to learn the latest about oral health, are interested in becoming a dentist or have any questions about oral health as an integral component of the new health care, the NHDS is here to serve you. 

Members of the New Hampshire Dental Society go above and beyond standard professional requirements. Your NHDS member dentist has made a special commitment to uphold the ethical code, practice standards and mission of the NHDS: to sustain and improve the spectrum of oral health for the people of New Hampshire by maintaining a relevant and effective dental profession. 

We encourage you to explore this site and take advantage of the information and services NHDS has to offer.  If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the NHDS team.
