Welcome to the Eighth District Dental Society!

Welcome to the Eighth District Dental Society website. We thank you for visiting and hope you find our site interesting and resourceful. You can find information about The Society and it’s affiliates in the "About Us" tab. The "Member Center" tab has information including how to join or renew your membership, membership benefits which are significant and worthwhile, and other resources that are available to members.

Additionally, you can find information in the "CE and Events" tab regarding all of our upcoming Continuing Education presentations and other events, including New Dentist events and Volunteer outreach programs. Conveniently, there is a "News and Publications" tab that features the 8th District Bulletin, classified ads, and job postings.

I encourage any New Member to visit our “Member Center” to find information about our newly introduced Student Loan Award Program. This is a great program to help defer some of the student loan debt that many have incurred. This program is available to those New Dentists who meet the eligibility criteria. It’s a benefit for the New Dentist and the Eighth District Dental Society.

As the 2020 President, I thank you for your membership in the Tripartite and encourage your interest in our updated website, attendance in CE programs, and participation in volunteer events that benefit the public we serve, as well as ourselves, the member dentists.

Please bring forth any concerns or suggestions that may better serve you, our members, improve The Society, and the dental and oral health of the public we serve.

Sincerely,

James C. Matteliano DDS
2020 President, Eighth District Dental Society

An URGENT Security Warning for Businesses Running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

If your organization is currently running Windows 7 on one or more computers in your office and/or if you are running Windows Server 2008 R2, you need to know about a dangerous security threat to your organization that must be addressed by January 2020!  Please take a moment to read this important announcement.

My name is Ikram Massabini, CEO of MVP Network Consulting and the Official IT Provider for the Eighth District Dental Society. As such, we are aggressively attempting to reach all businesses within the WNY area that use Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 to alert you to a serious security risk to your organization, and inform you about what you need to do now to protect your company and remain HIPAA Compliant.

Microsoft has officially announced that it will retire support on the Windows 7 operating system and Windows Server 2008 R2 on January 14, 2020 (see the enclosed article for more details). That means any computer or server with these operating systems installed will be completely exposed to serious hacker attacks aimed at taking control of your network, stealing data, crashing your system and inflicting a host of other business-crippling problems you do NOT want to have to deal with.

This is such a serious threat that all companies housing financial and medical information are being required by law to upgrade any and all computer systems running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 because firewalls and anti-virus software will NOT be sufficient to completely protect them (or you).

MVP is offering a free Microsoft Risk Assessment and Migration Plan for any Eighth District Society Members. We can scan your computers and let you know which ones need to be upgraded and/or replaced by the deadline to remain HIPAA Compliant. You can visit www.mvpworks.com/windows7 for more information.
