Connect. Support. Advance

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

Together, we can achieve anything!

Since 1970, SNDA has been dedicated to increasing the presence of minorities in the dental field.

As President, I will be working with the Executive Board to carry our strategic plan for the 2021-2022 academic year titled: Focusing Within. The goal for this year is to find new ways to serve our SNDA family, so that we can continue to increase membership benefits. I look forward to your thoughts on the changes you would like to see in this organization and how SNDA can best serve its members.
