Misson Statement:

The Dutchess County Dental Society is an organization for Dutchess County Dentists, committed to continuing education and the advancement of current dental knowledge.

The Dutchess County Dental Society wishes to congratulate Dr. Michael Schwartz on his retirement from the executive board of our society. Mike is very possibly the longest serving member of our organization!

He started over 50 years ago with serving his colleagues in the dental community. He was involved with the merger of the Southern Dutchess Dental Group into the DCDS and has since then served in many, if not all, capacities of our society. Most recently as Secretary and author of our very popular column that appears in the bulletin of the Ninth District Dental Society.

His selfless work on the behalf of our dental society is greatly appreciated and his shoes will be hard to fill. We wish Mike many happy and productive years in his private practice as well as a future full of adventures to share with his family.

Astor Childrens & Family Services is offering assistance as a provider of NY Project Hope.
