UofL at SNDA

During the SNDA 105th Annual Convention in Orlando, FL this summer, UofL received the small chapter of the year award and first place for the scrapbook video award that highlighted several of the chapter’s achievements.  

Faculty advisor Dr. Sherry Babbage and students Kierra Thornton, Janani Gurukkal, Shivani Shah, Summer Stringer, Cristin Jackson, Michael Caltabiano, Darius Sanford, Jessica Williams and Kevin Ogle attended the conference, along with 2018 graduates Aaron McCarley and James Bland. 

About 50 college students from institutions in the surrounding Florida area attended a recruitment fair and took part in activities designed to strengthen students for dental school admissions. 

UofL’s members attended seminars on topics that included endo technique, post-grad applications, head and neck malignancies and practice ownership. They also spent time networking with SNDA members from about 20 dental schools.
