Multicultural Oral Health Association
Welcome… this is the website to learn about what’s going on with the Indiana University Student National Dental Association (SNDA), Hispanic Dental Association (HDA), and Society of American Indian Dentist (SAID).
Our mission is to…
Mentor students (from preschooler age students to graduate students), promote diversity through activities and events, and provide fellowship among its members. The organization focuses its efforts on community service. None of us, as students made it to dental school by only our efforts, but rather we have come to be where we are from the efforts of those before us and around us, therefore, it is our responsibility to give back to the community.
Provide a voice for historically underrepresented oral health students i.e. Blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans at the Indiana University School of Dentistry
Engage in Community Service
Promote the oral health of the underrepresented community, in Indiana through improved education, prevention and treatment.
Educate the Community
Stimulate interest and encourage entry of minorities into oral health careers. Provide cultural and educational experiences for non-minority students who wish to learn more about underrepresented cultures.
