Welcome to the Lancaster County Dental Society.
The Lancaster County Dental Society has a long and distinguished history. Since it's founding in 1867, the Society has grown to over 200 active members from throughout historic Lancaster County. With a population of 55,351, Lancaster is the eighth largest city in Pennsylvania. The population of the metropolitan area stands at 494,486 making it the 101st largest metropolitan area in the US. For this reason, the members of the Lancaster County Dental Society remain committed to encourage the improvement of the oral health of the public, to promote the art and science of dentistry and encourage the maintenance of high standards of professional competence and practice, and to represent the interests of the members of the dental profession and the public which it serves.
Other active dental health related groups in the area include the Alliance of the Lancaster County Dental Society and the Lancaster County Dental Hygiene and Assistants Association.
The purpose of the web site is to keep our members abreast of upcoming continuing education meetings, list upcoming member events, discuss any legislative issues related towards our profession and keeping us informed about our community. Our hope is that our members access the site and find it helpful and informative.
