SNDA Hosts Fall Impressions Program
The UNC-Chapel Hill School of Dentistry’s Student National Dental Association (SNDA) recently hosted its Fall Impressions Program – which brought more than 60 students to the school for a full day of events Nov. 4.
This program is a recruitment initiative designed to increase minority representation within the profession of dentistry. Potential applicants have the opportunity to visit the dental school and interact with students, administrators and professors.
The day’s events included a DAT review session, mock interviews, professional and student panels and a laboratory session. This year’s theme focused on minority males in dentistry.
The School of Dentistry event featured representation from more than 12 colleges and universities along the East Coast. The SNDA will host the Spring Impressions Program in April 2007.
