FIRST DISTRICT DENTAL SOCIETY

What Is FDDS And
How Does It Benefit You?

The First District Dental Society (FDDS) is composed of approximately 200 qualified regional member dentists representing the dental professional community in the upper East Tennessee areas including the following counties: Washington, Sullivan, Carter, Greene, Johnson, Unicoi, and Hawkins Counties. The FDDS is a component society of the Tennessee Dental Association (TDA) and the American Dental Association (ADA). Our members have the advantage of the full benefits of each branch of the tripartite affiliation.

Object of FDDS

The object of this non- profit Dental Association is to encourage the improvement of the health of the public, to promote the art and science of dentistry and to represent the interests of the members of the dental profession and the public which it serves.

On a local level the FDDS provides opportunities for and with the members meet together on a regular basis and to earn continuing education credits. We provide to member, as well as non-member, dentists the opportunity to stay up to date with yearly OSHA/TOSHA training and Bi-annual Chemical Dependency for the entire team. We also host a staff appreciate event each Spring.

Helping Community

To help our community, the FDDS members conduct dental health education projects and activities, are involved in and support other community organizations, educational programs, and volunteer in clinics. As a courtesy, the FDDS can provide individuals with referrals to member dentists by clicking on the “Find-a-Dentist Link” on this website.
