Welcome to the Seventeenth District Dental Society

We work diligently to enhance the oral health care environment in the Big Country. We are here to serve our members, Texans, and our partners in oral health care, through advocacy, a variety of resources, and fostering collaboration. Texas has been recognized as a leader in oral health care, and as a leader in overall health- and we know just how strong the ties are between oral health and overall health.

Members of the public can look here for information on low cost dental care, general oral health care, dental careers, or finding a dentist close to where you live, we are here to serve you. When you visit a member dentist, you should take comfort in the fact that your dentist has made a commitment to uphold the higher ethical standards, practice values, and mission of the ADA, the TDA & the Seventeenth District.
