From our President: 

Being an African-American dental student, involvement with the Student National Dental
Association is paramount to me. I have had the pleasure of working on the executive board of
SNDA at CWRU for the past two years and I am honored to serve as president in year three.
After unprecedented growth in membership this year, I am excited to get all members involved
in the national mission of the SNDA while working on a local level.
Working with my fellow executive board members, we’re creating a jam-packed calendar of
events, meetings, and service to make this year our best yet. That being said, I’m eagerly
anticipating the ideas and input from our general body. Please don’t hesitate to shoot me an
email or find me in clinic—my door is always open!
I look forward to working with all of you to make this a wonderful, fulfilling year!

40+ Years of Tradition

The Student National Dental Association (SNDA) originated from concerned dental students at Meharry Medical College in 1970. As a branch of the National Dental Association whose inception occured some forty years prior in 1932, SNDA has become the largest minority dental student organization in the United States. We are proud to have our own chapter here at CWRU!
