Message from the Committee

March 10, 2017

This summer, our eighth annual predoctoral Mentorship Program will be available for young women and men to learn more about dentistry. In the program, participants will be able to shadow different dental practices and see firsthand the everyday life of a dentist. Also, we have specialists who will present seminars about their specialties and postdoctoral education. Finally, participants will be able to meet with dental school admissions officials and receive tours from current Korean American dental students, who are also part of KADA.


If you know any students who are interested in dentistry or will be applying to dental schools, let them know of this unique opportunity. Applications are due June 10, along with an application fee of $25. Application forms can be found online on the KADA website. This is an exciting opportunity for many young Korean Americans, as they achieve their goals and we gain dedicated colleagues.


The Mentorship Committee is also seeking mentor dentists. We are asking qualified dentists to open their practices and serve as mentors. This is a great opportunity to give back to the local community and impact the lives of young people at important times in their lives. If you are interested in volunteering in this event, please email KADA at for more information.


There are undoubtedly many young dentists who can attribute their new careers to KADA. Thank you for your support of the Mentorship Program! Let us continue to do well, in and outside of our practices.


Sincerely, the Membership Program Committee.
