The majority of Massachusetts dentists turn to the Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS) for guidance, education, and focused advocacy. When you join the MDS, you are part of a tripartite membership structure, which includes membership at all three levels of your professional association, national with the American Dental Society (ADA), state with the MDS, and the local District Dental Society. The MDS consists of fourteen local district dental societies.
