The Auxiliary to the National Dental Association (ANDA) is comprised of spouses of dental professionals. Our organization serves as a supportive group of friends who share an interest in family, community, and the dental profession. ANDA embraces the NDA’s mission of service to the community, dental student education and scholarships.
Membership is open to spouses of dentists who maintain membership in the NDA. Our focus and initiative are to create a more vital, visible and valuable organization to our members and guests, as well as to continue to encourage families to join the NDA family activities, support community service efforts and scholarships for minority dental students in the SNDA.
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. To receive ANDA news and stay updated contact ANDA’s Communications Chairperson
NDA / ANDA CONVENTIONS
ANDA meets annually at the NDA Convention. Members and guests attend NDA events as well as ANDA sponsored activities. Members are invited to join in the planning throughout the year and to participate during the conventions.
We will continue our mission of community involvement and service by providing a donation to a local community service organization. ANDA’s annual dental scholarship is awarded to students in their 2nd – 4th year of dental school to assist financially in their dental school expenses. We have awarded over $100,000 in dental scholarships, thanks to your support. Our primary focus for raising funds for dental scholarships and community service projects is through direct contributions.
We invite you to join us in reaching our annual goal of $5,000. Donations may be made in the amount of:
- $25 – Silver Donor
- $50 – Gold Donor
- $100 or more – Platinum Donor Gold ($50) and Platinum ($100 or more)
Donors will be recognized during the convention at ANDA’s General Business meeting. Registration and donations for scholarships as well as community service projects can be made using the ANDA Registration Form or ANDA’s Online Registration.
Registration is open to members and guests. The registration form is attached and Online Registration may be accessed through the link listed at the bottom of this page.
