SCDA History

Established in 1869, the South Carolina Dental Association (SCDA) represents and serves more than 2,000 Member Dentists in South Carolina. We are a non-profit association that provides services such as lobbying, legal counsel, continuing education opportunities, publications, insurance services, and practitioner networking and legislative events for members and community alike.

The History of the South Carolina Dental Association Centennial Edition 1869-1969 by Neill W. Macaulay is available from the SCDA. This hardbound edition was published in celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the SCDA, and includes biographies of every member and founding father in that time period. Also included are interviews with early practitioners, early meetings and annual session news, membership statistics, and photos of many of the above.
