About

The Raleigh-Wake County Dental Society is a professional health organization composed of nearly 300 dentists. Active membership is open to all dentists working and/or living in Wake County. The RWCDS was formed in 1975, growing out of the Raleigh Dental Society and reflecting the area’s increasing growth in both population and dentists. The RWCDS serves to promote oral health in the Wake County community, to provide continuing education, and to represent the interests of the dental profession in Wake County.

The RWCDS is guided under the direction of an Executive Board consisting of a president, a president-elect, a secretary, treasurer, an editor, two members-at-large, webmaster and served by several committees. The Society’s members elect a new Executive Board annually.

The RWCDS’s meetings are held January through May and September through November resulting in eight general membership meetings per year. The meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at the North Ridge Country Club. Accredited continuing education is provided at most meetings. Besides members, trained dentists and dental students are welcome to attend general membership meetings on a limited basis. The Executive Board must approve attendance by all others.

The Executive Board meets the same months as the general membership meetings and convenes on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. Executive Board meetings are open to society members. Any general member wishing to attend an Executive Board Meeting is required to contact the President prior to the meeting date.

The RWCDS cannot make specific recommendations or warranties relative to any individual members’s skill, care and judgment, and would suggest that a consumer seeking  dental treatment consider both a dentist’s credentials in  dentistry and ask the dentist any questions regarding dental treatment.
