Event Sponsorship Opportunities
The Santa Clara County Dental Society is an incredibly vibrant, diverse and active organization. Our event coordinator works tirelessly to arrange exciting events for our membership throughout the year. Featuring some of the biggest names in the dental industry, SCCDS events are unique opportunities for networking, socializing and education. Whether the event takes place at our beautiful SCCDS Conference Center or at a sumptuous meeting hall, you can be sure that the best and brightest dental professionals in the county will be in attendance. In short, sponsoring our events is the perfect way to introduce your business to our membership!
SCCDS Monthly Meetings
On the second Thursday of every month, September through May, SCCDS members gather to discuss the latest events affecting the dental community, enjoy a delicious dinner and receive valuable continuing education delivered by some of dentistry’s top speakers. As our members mingle, they are drawn to the Sponsorship Tables in a special designated area near the tempting arrangements of delicious appetizers. This is your chance to greet our members in person, discuss how your services or products can meet their needs and make contacts that can turn into sales. Contact us today to find out how you can make the most of these valuable face-to-face opportunities.
Wise marketers will know that the key to successful sales lies in building relationships through consistency. That’s why SCCDS offers table sponsorship at a wide variety of events over the calendar year at prices that encourage you to attend more than one event. Choose either a 6’ or 8’ table and prepare to meet the dentists in a comfortable low-pressure setting. To make the most of your table sponsorship, be sure to bring your best giveaways and literature. And remember, each sponsor table comes with two delicious dinners for your representatives!
The Dental Society is always considering new ways to improve our sponsors’ experience. Our latest improvement is to include a list of our event sponsors’ names, logos and contact information presented on the inside cover of our Event Packets in addition to the list on our pre-show PowerPoint presentation. Our members take these packets with them after the meeting, referring back to them for a listing of our upcoming programs and events. This bonus advertising often lasts for weeks, and creates ongoing and valuable impressions.
Signing up for a display table at one of our events is quick and easy. Simply contact 408.289.1480 to speak with our event coordinator. We will be happy to welcome you to our growing list of loyal SCCDS sponsors.
Print Sponsorship Opportunities
Even in today’s digital world, the printed page remains an effective means of reaching your customers. In fact, magazine advertising is the most welcome form of advertising! According to the Adobe Systems “Click Here” Study, 45% of consumers and 55% of marketers chose printed magazines as their top preference when asked where they prefer to see advertising. Savvy marketers will recognize the value of advertising in a publication with a tightly focused audience of highly qualified readers who welcome advertising that is custom tailored to their unique needs.
“The Cutting Edge” Magazine
With a glossy full-color layout, thoughtful articles and efficient organization, our award-winning magazine, “The Cutting Edge,” receives a consistently fantastic response from readers throughout our dental community. The magazine recently received the “Best Newsletter” award from the International College of Dentists Journalism USA section. Nine great issues of the magazine are distributed to 1600 unique member addresses across Santa Clara County. Each member who receives “The Cutting Edge” is a potential customer just waiting to see your beautiful, full-color display or classified ad at the moment they need your product or service.
There is simply no better way to reach new dental customers than with an eye-catching advertisement in “The Cutting Edge.” When you advertise with us, you are supporting our Dental Society and organized dentistry as a whole. Our member dentists appreciate that loyalty and are happy to return the favor. In fact, many SCCDS members choose to search our “Marketplace” section first when looking for a product or service. Concerned about cost? With pricing beginning at a modest $110 per month, we have options to fit any budget. We even provide basic design and correction services to help you get your ad just right.
When you want your property, equipment or service to sell quickly and without a lot of fuss, our Classified section is the choice for you.

SCCDS Member Directory
Our dentists and their front-office staff rely on the SCCDS Member Directory to help them keep in touch with colleagues and provide a source of trusted business referrals. The directory is presented as a perfectly bound book and annually distributed to every member. Although it is published less frequently, dentists and staff refer to the Member Directory over and over again throughout the year, giving your advertisement priceless visual reinforcement. And, of course, sponsors also receive a free copy of the Member Directory with any ad placement.
