Message From Our Executive Director

Welcome to the website of the Northern Virginia Dental Society (NVDS). Our site offers specifically-designed sections for our 1400 plus members, other dental professionals and the public.

Serving the rapidly-growing and diverse northern Virginia area since 1931, NVDS is dedicated to assisting the public. The Society works extremely hard to fulfill this mission through outreach programs such as our own Northern Virginia Dental Clinic, our annual  “Give Kids A Smile” day and our past “Mission of Mercy” projects.

Dental professionals are invited to browse through the Becoming a New Member section to learn more about the many benefits enjoyed by our membership. Networking tools such as ADA Continuing Education Recognized Provider (CERP) courses help professionals stay in the loop with the latest in business innovations and medical information. Volunteer opportunities are plentiful and our bi-monthly newsletter, NOVA News, provides a variety of useful and timely information and is a great venue for exchanging ideas with fellow dentists. Our members also benefit from the Society’s active representation in the legislative arena.

Please take a few minutes to explore our site. Be sure to check out the links we’ve provided to the ADA, VDA and other related organizations; the resources are abundant and NVDS is here to serve you!

Executive Director
