The Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS) is dedicated to the continuing improvement of the oral health of the general public. The members of the MDS are committed to providing the highest-quality, compassionate oral health care that is accessible to all, and to educate the public regarding the value of oral health as it relates to total well-being.
Access to Dental Care
Low-income families and individuals face many barriers to accessing dental care. As a result, the MDS advocates for those in need by developing innovative programs for underprivileged children, while also making known other reduced-cost dental programs throughout the state.
There’s No Place Like A Safe Home
Prescription drug abuse is a critical problem that’s reaching epidemic proportions.
It’s estimated that more than six million Americans are affected, with the cost to our health care system continuing to be on the rise.
As a way of helping to address this important issue, the Massachusetts Dental Society is collaborating with several other organizations as part of the Safe Homes Coalition, which is designed to help bring greater attention to what people can do to reduce the incidence of the misuse of prescription drugs and to potentially save lives..
