Members of the North Carolina Dental Society go above and beyond professional requirements. Your NCDS member dentist has made a special commitment to uphold the ethical code, practice standards and mission of the North Carolina Dental Society:
to sustain and improve the spectrum of oral health for the people of North Carolina by maintaining a relevant and effective dental profession.
The North Carolina Dental Society keeps members up to date on the latest scientific developments and recommendations from the American Dental Association, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the NC Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
While North Carolina dentists are required to attend 15 hours of certified continuing education each year for re-licensure, the North Carolina Dental Society provides a wide range of educational programming annually at seminars throughout the state and encourages its members to attend more than the state-required hours.
