WSDA Mentor Program

The WSDA Mentor Program matches University of Washington School of Dentistry students with mentor dentists who are members of the Washington State Dental Association.
The Mentor Program gives students a valuable opportunity to connect with and learn from WSDA dentists, and gives dentists the opportunity to share advice and expertise with future members of their profession.
