PURPOSE: To share information with Dental Colleagues in the Long Island Area for the mutual betterment of all concerned.

Information including, but not limited to: case planning, dental issues, staff issues, supplies and equipment issues, management issues.

HOW IT WORKS: Any licensed dentist in Long Island can register their email address with the message board.


Once registered:

  • You can contribute as much or as little to the message board. (you can be a silent reader)
  • Whatever you present, or any questions asked will be distributed to the entire group via email.
  • This is a listserve and is not edited.
  • Most members set up a folder within their emails (with a rule – subject LIDentists) so that all emails are stored in the folder.

THE LONG ISLAND DENTISTS MESSAGE BOARD is Limited to Dentists only, not open to Salespeople or Staff.


Each member may have only one e-mail address on the list. You will not be able to send messages to the list from any address other than the one you specified on the signup form.

To change your e-mail address on the list, contact us>>.  Your new address will overwrite the old. Remember that updating the e-mail address with Dr. Farber’s office does NOT change your address on the list.
