Christian Dental Association

Our Mission

The Christian Dental Association exists to motivate, educate, and equip dental and dental hygiene students to glorify God by:
  • living out the character of Christ in their homes, classrooms, clinics, communities, and around the world;
  • pursuing professional competence and Christ-like compassion in their daily work;
  • influencing their families, colleagues, and patients toward a right relationship with Jesus Christ;

Our Methods

In order to bring about our desired vision we:
  • Organize monthly meetings centered on growth in Christ as it relates specifically to the student dentist
  • Hold on-campus Bible studies
  • Get involved with local community outreach projects
  • Coordinate and send students and dental professionals on short term mission trips

Our Statement of Faith

(While each of us holds fast to additional beliefs important to our relationship with God, the following statement outlines the tenets that provide a foundation for our fellowship and participation in the Christian Medical & Dental Associations.)

I believe:

  1. In the divine inspiration and final authority of the Bible as the Word of God;
  2. In the eternal God revealed in Holy Scripture as Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
  3. In the unique Deity of Jesus Christ, God's only Son, whose death and resurrection provide by grace through faith the only means of my salvation;
  4. In the transforming presence and power of the Holy Spirit.
