The Auxiliary to the National Dental Association (ANDA) is comprised of spouses of dental professionals. Our organization serves as a supportive group to family members and friends of the NDA, ANDA, and affiliated NDA organizations. ANDA embraces the NDA’s mission of service to the community, dental student education and scholarships. As ANDA members, we meet periodically throughout the year via teleconferences. Our General Membership and Executive Board Meetings are held annually at the NDA conventions.
Our convention planning team and Executive Board works tirelessly to plan for the annual conventions; explore ways in which we can be more effective in community service and ways to assist minority dental students through scholarships. All ANDA members ideas and participation are welcome.
Over the next two years, ANDA will focus its attention on building collaborative alliances and leveraging partnerships in support of our emphasis areas:
Communication/Educational Outreach, e.g. marketing to attract new members with emphasis on spouses married to female dentists, and dental care/educational awareness
Partnerships/Relationships, e.g. leveraging partners’ resources, and access to community service activities, and financially supporting dental students
ANDA Branding, e.g. Improving visibility and showcasing its value in support of NDA families, children, and community outreach
Our collective and collaborative efforts will go a long way in advancing the mission of NDA in positive ways. Let’s join together to cultivate our partnerships that can have lasting impacts on our NDA families, especially our children’s future endeavors during their academic matriculation and beyond in the real business world.
