The Corydon Palmer Dental Society is a not-for-profit association of almost 300 dental practitioners, serving more than a quarter of a million families in Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties. We are the local component of the American Dental Association and the Ohio Dental Association, with members in Ohio’s Trumbull, Mahoning and Columbiana counties. 

Our member dentists embrace organized dentistry as a vehicle to ensure their continuing awareness of technology and legislation within the field, a means of information among colleagues, and an aid to effective communication with patients and the public. This Web site serves to further those goals. Whether you are looking for information about us as a group, are seeking information about some aspect of dentistry, or are looking for a dentist, we hope you will find these pages helpful. If you are a society member, just sign in to the professional side of our site.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Corydon Palmer Dental Society is to collectively promote, educate and represent members of the dental society and thereby better serve the health of our community.

On these pages, you will learn about dental procedures and specialties, such as Endodontics, Prosthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics, Orthodontics, Oral And Maxillofacial Surgery, Fixed Appliances (braces), Inlays, Dental Prostheses, Dental Prophylaxis, Root Canal surgery, Bleaching, Bonding, Veneers and Sealants. 

You’ll learn the meaning of such terms as Abrasion, Abutment, Amalgam, Bitewing radiographs, Caries, Dentin, Plaque, Gingivitis, and the various forms of Anesthesia.

You’ll read tips to encourage dental health; you’ll be introduced to our peer review and mediation programs; you’ll learn about the profession of dentistry and how you can be a part of it — as a dentist, dental hygienist or dental assistant.

New in town? We’ll tell you how to find a dentist and even give you maps to our members’ offices and links to their Web sites. If you have low or no income and are without dental insurance, you can read how to access dental care through Access Health Mahoning Valley and the Dental OPTIONS programs.

Everybody wins at Special Olympics

During Dr. Joseph Baytosh’s presidency in 2014, the Corydon Palmer Dental Society set a goal of participating in one or more worthy causes, not dental related, to remind ourselves and others that we are more than dental professionals – we are neighbors, friends, family members, and we care about our community.  So we began to seek worthy causes to contribute toward.

A recent opportunity came with the Special Olympics games in East Liverpool and Girard.

Dr. James Ramunno, our president, put the word out in late April that the Special Olympics would hold games in East Liverpool, Austintown and Girard, and that we would start our project by participating in the East Liverpool and Girard events. He asked for volunteers — and he got them.

So in East Liverpool on May 2 and in Girard on May 9, Drs. Baytosh and Ramunno were joined by seven  and six volunteers, respectively  (including a couple of spouses), and pitched in to do whatever was needed.

Our crew set to work to be as helpful as possible: in East Liverpool, they assisted at the men’s and women’s softball throw and the mini-javelin throw, and helped give out awards.  In Girard, they mostly assisted with the awards ceremonies, lining up the athletes in order of placement in their respective heats – “a full-time job, with so many athletes,” Dr. Baytosh reported.

Special Olympics Area 11 Director Jack Muransky expressed appreciation for the dentists’ participation, and the local coordinator from Mahoning County, Sheila Martinson, added that “Dentists create beautiful smiles every day in the dentist office, but the members of the dental society went above and beyond at the ELSO track meet. The smiles they created on the faces and in the hearts of all the athletes created memories that will last a lifetime. We were blessed to have them.”

It was a totally successful project, Dr. Ramunno said.  “Our society already does a wonderful job participating in many dental community service projects such as Access Health Mahoning Valley, Give Kids a Smile, and the Canfield Fair. We wanted to take it a step farther this year and broaden our scope of community service to something non-dental.  Many of us treat special needs patients in our practice already, so what better way to give back than the Special Olympics?”

He offered a special pat on the back to the volunteers who appeared with him and Dr. Baytosh at each event: In East Liverpool, Dr. and Mrs. DeChellis, Mrs. Baytosh, and Drs. DeAngelo, Watts, Caldwell, and Logan. In Girard, Drs. LaFuria, Bedich, Watts, Lessick, Logan, and DelBane.

The Society adds our thanks to these special volunteers!
