Welcome to the the UCLA Chapter of the Student National Dental Association (SNDA)!
Welcome to the Student National Dental Association! For four decades, the SNDA has been fulfilling it’s purpose of promoting fellowship and cooperation among it’s members and aiding in the advancement of minority students in dentistry.
Our mission was established in 1970, and it continuously remains to promote support, and encourage a promising academic and social environment for minority dental students. We are committed to providing oral hygiene education all through our outreach efforts, increasing the presence of minorities within dental schools and dental education, as well as improving access to care and the delivery of dental services to all people, emphasizing minorities and the underserved.
In the 21st Century, we have furthered our purpose of supporting minority dental students within accredited dental schools through the publication of monthly newsletter, financial scholarships, to assist it’s members, and development of national Leadership Conference and the Grand Annual National Convention.
