Connect. Support. Advance

It’s our longstanding goal to promote, aid and support the academic and social environment of minority dental students.

Getting Back to the Basics, Together!

In all, we stand together, achieving a common goal, and striving for excellence in the forefront.

Your National Executive Board is excited to introduce and begin implementing our strategic plan for the 2023-24 year, coined “Getting back to the basics”. Since 1970, SNDA has been dedicated to increasing the presence of minorities in the dental field and personally, even before entering dental school, I recall viewing SNDA as a prestigious organization for minorities, by minorities who share a common goal of becoming a dentist. The core initiatives within ‘Getting Back to the Basics’ will focus on re-establishing the foundation our organization has been built on and further develop community through enhancement of our members’ resources, support of our growing local chapters and by spotlighting innovations within the dental field.
