The Minnesota Student District Dental Society was established in September of 1995 and was the first in the nation to be a component within a State Dental Association made up of dental students. The Student District Dental Society has over 90% membership at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry.
The Purpose of this Minnesota Student District Dental Society is to develop and enhance student involvement in the dental profession, to disperse information on relevant issues, to serve as a platform for interaction between dental classes and associated programs, and to promote the improvement of the public health and the art and science of dentistry.
