The University of Tennessee, Memphis ~ Student National Dental Association
The Student National Dental Association (SNDA) was incorporated in 1972, over 50 years after its parent group, the National Dental Association. It was created to encourage minority dental students in the pursuit of a dental career. The SNDA addresses the needs and concerns of minority dental students. The organization serves as a support group for minority students and works to provide a national communications network among students as a means of improving the health-employment distribution among minority and ethnic groups. SNDA works closely with the National Dental Association and strives to educate and involve members in the social, moral, and ethical obligations of the dental profession. The University of Tennessee actively pursues the organization's goals and is heavily involved in the recruitment of minority students. Social activities for members and service to the school and dental community are among the many areas addressed by the local SNDA chapter.

The members of the SNDA hope to provide not only a support network for our members, but for our campus and community as well. In this effort, the SNDA strives to act as a vehicle to educate and involve members in the social, moral, and ethical obligations of the dental profession. In order to achieve this goal our members have committed themselves to performing at least one public service activity per month.
