About Us

Members and consumers call on The Greater Cleveland Dental Society for many different reasons and for multiple situations. If we can’t answer your question, we'll help direct you to the information you need.

The GCDS is a non-profit, professional trade organization with more than 800 member-dentists, representing all areas of dentistry. Founded in 1886, the GCDS is a unified organization of individual members committed to the highest quality of care for the public and a resource for advocacy, education, communication, information and fellowship.

The GCDS is a local component of a tripartite association where members belong to the American Dental Association, the state association, and their local component society. This Society is governed by a 24-member board and currently has five executive office staff to serve our members.
