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.

ANDA members 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.

Contributions are welcome throughout the year (use registration form) to support our scholarships to SNDA dental students and to local community organizations that serve the under-served.



Registration is open to members and guests. The registration form may be accessed at the bottom of this page.
