Washington State Dental Association


A joint effort of the WSDA and UW School of Dentistry Alumni Association, the Mentor Program began 19 years ago for students who wished to have a WSDA member assigned to them to use as a resource through dental school.

The WSDA pairs dental students with dentists who support and encourage the student during dental school, and educate him/her in areas of professional ethics, practice management and help increase the student's awareness of the importance of organized dentistry.

The benefits to students are limitless; it helps them establish good relationships with professionals and provides them with first-hand knowledge of a what takes to be a successful dentist in today's environment. American Student Dental Association (ASDA) members will be given priority placement.

For questions, please contact Laura Rohlman at laura@wsda.org, or at 800.448.3368.
