The Student National Dental Association

The Student National Dental Association (SNDA) has had a longstanding goal for over 50 years to promote, aid and support the academic and social environment of minority students. SNDA strives to establish opportunities for its members to develop stronger alliances amongst one another while developing a sense of community, aiding in the advancement of minority students within the field of dentistry.

SNDA provides great opportunities to hone leadership skills on both a national and local level.

Consider applying for an executive board position at the next annual national convention. Also, check out the chapters’ page for local chapter contact information. Being an SNDA leader is a role that will prepare you for a lifetime of success in dentistry!
