DSD is a most unique organization within the profession of dentistry. DSD, unlike any other dental organization, encompasses every aspect in the life of a dental professional. It bonds together scholastic, professional, ethical, benevolent, extracurricular, social and interpersonal relationships. This bond is international in character, invading conventional barriers of ethnicity, age, sex, race and religion.
Knowledge, Strength, and Justice, the fundamental precepts upon which DSD was founded, are as relevant to contemporary society worldwide as they were in the early days of DSD. Once inculcated into the life of the brothers and sisters of DSD, these guiding principles can have a profoundly positive influence starting from the day of initiation.
