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.


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