About the Saint Paul District

Founded in 1906, this Society has grown until today it serves four counties of the Saint Paul area (Ramsey, Dakota, Washington & Chisago) including over 500 dentists as members.  The Saint Paul District Dental Society offers a patient referral service, peer review and mediation, Midwinter Meeting, SPDDS Bulletin, Children's Dental Health Month, Union Gospel Mission Dental Clinic and many leadership and volunteer opportunities. 


Our Mission:  "The SPDDS is the local association of dentists which promotes the oral health of the public, ethics, science and professional advancement of our members."

SPDDS sponsors Children’s Dental Health Day

It is a goal of the Saint Paul District Dental Society to help educate and promote dentistry to CHILDREN and PARENTS!  In February each year SPDDS sponsors Children’s Dental Health Day at the Minnesota Children’s Museum.  Volunteer dentists, dental staff and students from the dental schools offer activities for the children

They learn about the intra-oral camera, how to properly brush their teeth, how pop, juice and sour candy can affect teeth and the importance of sealant and flossing.  Parents can ask important dental-related questions while children pretend to be a dentist, do art activities and visit with costume characters.  Children receive a free toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and other handouts!
