Hello SNDA Family!

 My name is Rachel Porter and I am a third-year dental student at East Carolina University School of Dental Medicine. I am elated to serve as Vice President on the SNDA National Executive Board for the 2020-2021 School Year. My roles include successfully planning and executing the National Convention which will take place in Atlanta, GA in June of 2021. I also serve as Chair of our Programming Committee which includes HBCU Connect and SNDA reach. As a fourth generation HBCU graduate, it is my goal to address the shortage of minority dentists, by supporting and mentoring pre-dental students at HBCU’s across the country. I look forward to working with a group of like-minded individuals, contributing to the family aspect of SNDA, and positively impacting the lives of pre-dental, and current dental students.


If you have any questions about the National Convention or our programs, please feel free to reach out to me directly.
